Strange Aircraft at heathrow

(1/2) > >>

GBOAF:
Found this wierd plane while i was paning around Heathrow.





Does anyone know what it is and why it is there?

Ive never seen it before in any previous photos and also why is it green?

Thanks in advance

I've seen it there and from the look of it I thought it was for fire practice etc...

.. and google images confirms that: http://aviation-safety.net/photos/fire/990074-F-d-1-500.jpg

Yeh its a metal mockup, inside there are 2 stories, so its a small mockup of a 747 for fire training purposes. There are many of these green mockups at airports around the UK including Manchester/Gatwick/Birmingham

Actually, it's not a mockup of any aircraft in particular.

It's got the forward hump of a 747, but only 2 wing engines and a tail engine of a DC-10.  Some of them look like a hybrid of a C-5/BAe-146 and a 727.

It just depends on what they order.

Yeah, they have a couple of them around Gardermoen ENGM also I think. Remember seeing one last time I was there.
