The area by Rapid Racking has emptied out a bit as the BA B747 have started to be broken up.

Also the Belfast Apron now holds more nose sections than complete airframes.

Hopefully things can be shuffled around.

Hi Maltatripper can you tell them to stop scrapping the 747s please as I’m visiting on Saturday and was hoping to see them! 😂

On a more serious note I imagine they’ll probably scrap the 747s first in terms of wide body aircraft, whether it be the remaining BA 747s or perhaps the Air Atlanta Icelandic or single CorsAir one.

An update today from my last visit, newly arrived A330 VP-CNV is parked on taxiway C in front of M-FTOH (by the road), BA 747 G-BYGF has completely gone now and only the front of G-BYGB remains. EZ-A101 has also now disappeared and VP-CNW has had its engines removed.

Summit Air Skyvan C-FARA was also seen parked on site D.
