If you are referring to a United Airlines Boeing 727 with registration N7001U, upper fuselage painted white with a blue stripe along the windows and a blue/red "stripe" up the tail, well... it is indeed at Paine Field in Everett, at least as of mid-February. It was parked just outside a hangar which was labelled So-and-so aircraft restorers. (I forget the name). There was also a BOAC Comet (EVCC) parked nearby. -- James Strickland "No silicon heaven?!? firstname.lastname@example.org Where would all the calculators go?"
