Any word on additional arrivals? I noted that the LH fleet checker is updated once again and no other 744's appear to be (planned) to be withdrawn anytime soon. Actually 6 previous nominees for storage are cancelled again from the list.

A few have recently been parked at LDE. So maybe change of plans? Anybody any idea how many parking spots are still available at Twente? Can Twente accommodate 4 additional jumbo's?

EHTW is able to accommodate all of the 6 747s. They're just waiting until the new parking spots are completely finished.

The last 3 are planned for July 13 (D-ABVP), 16 (D-ABVS) and 20 (D-ABVX) according to this overview: https://sites.google.com/site/lhgroupfleet/lufthansa

My experience for the last couple of weeks is that the overview is not always 100% correct, but it's usually also not complete nonsense. Sometimes flights happen a day or two later, or two destinations get swapped.

Our regional news is well eh, yeah:

https://www.rtvoost.nl/nieuws/333148/Di ... juist-goed

"In totaal biedt Twente plaats aan zes toestellen van de Duitse luchtvaartmaatschappij. Vandaag landen er weer vijf Boeings."

"Twente can accommodate 6 aircraft of the German carrier. Today five more Boeings will land."

Technically, there are 5 of the old 747's left at FRA, but two of them have been scheduled to go to Hamburg and 3+5 = 8.

They corrected it, it was where it now says: "Vandaag landt nummer vier. De andere twee toestellen komen later deze zomer, zegt De Groot."

However, knowing TV Oost... as expected, it was not updated on Teletext:
