Anyone know the registration of the former El-Al 707 stored next to the 747 that has no wings? I believe the 747 is 4X-AXA
Also, any way to identify two white 747-4XX white freighters that were sitting at TLV around noon on the same day?
4X-ELF should have been at TLV at noon on August 7, 2015. It left TLV only at 5:40pm. This one has El Al titles, though.
According to radar data Cargo Air Lines B747 4X-ICB (which is painted all white) must have also been present at this time as it also left TLV in the early evening.
I´m sorry I cannot help with those aircraft stored.
Good catch on 4X-ELF. Tail is white as is most of the fuselage. That's how I missed it. The winglet however does have a blue stripe.
This should be the last question off this trip. I noticed in one of my photographs the tail of a Jade airways 747. Any ID or status would be appreciated.
The 707 is ex Israeli Airforce 4X-JYX/117 Thx
Cargo Air Lines of Israel has an ex Jade 747 with reg 4X-ICA. Saw that in LGG in early June myself as it wore basic Jade colours. It was reported to be due for a repaint into all white and should have been in the paint shop early August.
As the other three aircraft not taken up by anyone else aren´t stored in TLV to my knowledge, maybe it was this one...?
I checked planefinder and this was the only one there at the time. thx jeff
i made an error. I saw it on July 29th. I am not sure what building it is next to but there appears to be two 737's nearby, both mostly white. The building was along side runway 12-30. Thx
Ah that makes sense. 4X-ICA only left TLV around 7.30PM in the evening. So it must have been this one. The august date confused me as it should have been in the AMS paint shop then
