747SP In Shannon

Post by Krusty »

Spotted around midday today at Shannon. Globabl Peace Ambassadors 747SP. Picking up humanitarian aid for Asia or transiting with same I'd imagine.

Notice the reg of the aircraft? This was formerly operated by CAL and was the aircraft which survived a pretty dramatic incident after stalling at 41,000'. It rolled and lost a few pieces of its wing and fuselage, before landing safely at SFO.

No didn't notice the reg. It was parked on the 'secure' taxiway/area opposite the terminal where the C130s usually park, and I spotted it from the perimiter.

Although as far as I can gather they only have the 1 747SP (N4522V), so I'd take a stab that it's that one.

According to a thread running on A.net, the aircraft continued to Cincinnati after leaving SNN.

(Does Ohio need that much peace? I know it was a swing state in the last election - the one that gave us GWB. Thanks guys! :( )
