    Default Global Peace Ambassadors - Boeing 747SP-09 at Tijuana discussion

    This is a discussion thread for the following file:

    Global Peace Ambassadors - Boeing 747SP-09 at Tijuana

    The plane was ferried from Thunder Bay to undergo service at Matrix at 16 December 2005.

    Seen sitting outside the AVOLAR hangar at Tijuana airport. It seems that work on the aircraft has not been started yet until 22 April 2006.

    On 17 December 2006 it is still sitting outside Avolar hangar. No work taking place. Engines uncovered, and no measures appear to have been taken to preserve the planes serviceability.

    On 1 February 2007 the plane is reported for sale.
