DC8 ZS-OSI

Looks as if ZS-OSI is now gone, when did this happen.

I assume it was sometime in 2015.

Are any aircraft still stored at Manston, apart from Tornado ZA398.

Many thanks.

Yes, it started to disappear into the skip early on Monday morning (16th Feb) and by midday was gone . . . . . (see banner head)
ZA398 left for Marham on a low-loader sometime in early 2014.
And apart from the stuff at the fire school/museums there is now nothing left . . . . .

When did the 747 parked up by end of 28 disappear?

Surely the only part of ZA398's airframe that went back to Marham was the vertical tail. The rest was towed over to the fire school.

Correct, Dave - memory not what it was - Manstonman

Couple of F2's and a Nimrod still extant I believe as well as GR4a 'shiny two' (sans tailfin) near the admin/accomodation. Shame about the 747 near 28 as this was one of the Virgin Atlantic pioneers I was told....

LV-AZF was G-VRUM from 2002 to 2004.

Pity that all of the stored airliners are now gone.

Also that the GR4A did not go to the Manston Museum.
