"Hey, Mister, You Forgot Your 747s!"

Three 747s have been abandoned at the Kuala Lumpur International Airport.

The airplanes all have Icelandic registration prefixes. A quick check of the Icelandic aircraft registry shows no results for any of them. Which may mean nothing, as some countries may not list all registered aircraft for whatever reason they seem fit.

Whether a no-account outfit just dumped them there or if they were airplanes used by spooks which have outlived their usefulness is open to speculation.

I'm sending them a letter now where I claim all three and offer them two to cover all outstanding storage costs. Now I just gotta find a POH so I can fly the third one outta there. There's gotta be some use for one of those.
