Five Boeing 747 jumbo jets, among the last remaining in service on behalf of British Airways, have been spotted heading towards Teruel (Spain) on April 3, 2020.
On April 3, 2020, at least five British Airways (BA) Jumbo jets (registration numbers G-CIVA, G-CIVT, G-CIVR, G-CIVS, G-CIVX) embarked on a journey from London Heathrow (LHR), UK, towards Teruel (TEV), Spain.
Teruel Airport (TEV) is Europe’s largest aircraft boneyard (parking, maintenance and recycling facility), where planes are flown to either wait for their return to service, or… be scrapped and turned into something else.
