[i]The 747, registration number N911NA, is now being stored at a NASA facility near the Davies Airpark. [NASA Armstrong Flight Research Center Director David] McBride said officials are working on a plan to safely tow it over to the display area. He expects the move to occur within the next three to four weeks.
The shuttle carrier will go on display alongside a B-52, F-104, C-46 and other retired military aircraft. McBride said the 747 will be the largest aircraft displayed there.
McBride said the aircraft will remain available to NASA for spare parts to support the SOFIA program, which uses a 747 as a flying observatory. That aircraft is based out of Palmdale.
He added that although NASA does not plan any ceremony to mark the arrival of 747 at the airpark, McBride expects the city of Palmdale to hold an event.[/i]
