MANY thanks to Mike Russell who took these photos this afternoon of three Boeing 747s lined up at the Cotswold Airport in Kemble, ready to be scrapped.

The planes are being stored at the Kemble site, which includes a business scrap facility.

British Airways' last two Heathrow-based Boeing 747 planes made their final flights last week.

This follows the retirement of the airline's fleet of 747-400, which was brought forward as a result of the impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the airline and the aviation sector.
