2008-08-04P4-AFENo Titles  Scrapped Hello, I was at TFC in Velbert, Germany. TFC is a company that converts scrapped aircraft into cabin/flightdeck simulators and the majority of the fuselage of this SP is there. I went in it in 2008 on a stopover through DUS back to the US and it became my first 747SP. The entire lower deck fuselage is there as well as the upper deck, excluding the flightdeck. Sincerely yours, Captain Diamond
2010-09-24P4-AFE   OtherLUXCockpit and upper deck section has been retained by Cargolux. It is being used as a training device for emergency evacuation through the flight deck overhead escape hatch and the service door (on the right).
