The lone 747SP-27 (originally built for Braniff) was sold several
years ago.  The other ten (all 747SP-21 models) are still owned by
United but are stored, N146UA at MZJ and the other nine at LAS, and
are unlikely to return to service with United.  United's last revenue
service with an SP was UA 59 IAD-SFO on October 20th, 1994, operated
with N145UA, the only one which received the new colors.
