Any ideas?

I can’t find any information about this aircraft. Anyone have any ideas?

I’m guessing mistaken registration but not many aircraft with this capability (distance & altitude) fly into KRME anymore.

Previous owner

SAA [SA] South African Airways Reg ZS-SAY

Guess it’s not such an interesting aircraft but still an interesting flight

Empire Aviation at Rome/Griffiss do major maintenance and refurbishment. I expect they are preparing it for the new owner, whoever that is.

FlightAware Flight Tracker similar flight, one of several B747’s arriving at KRME for painting for Transaero, will get a VP-B__ registration.
