This 742 was delivered as a freighter in December 1982 as N211JL and transferred to the Japanese register in December 1997. It went to Kalitta as N746CK in November 2008 and has been stored (scrapped?) at OSC since August 2015.
This 'Universal Studios Japan' pencil jet had been parked up over night and is pictured waiting to to be called into action. I was a bit frustrated seeing this as I had spent all of the previous day at Itami Sky Park without catching a single Special (which must be some sort of record in itself for Japan).
Registered on 31 Jan 1968. This aircraft was withdrawn from use in the early 1980s, and the registration was cancelled on 9 July 1981. It was later reported as preserved in Takigawa, Japan, but no evidence of this could be found.
This Tracker, which still carries its former US Navy serial 136681 under the tail plane, was returned to the US Navy in 1977 and stored at Atsugi Air Base, Japan. It was one of eleven ex-Japanese Trackers sold to Native Alaskan Reclamation and Pest Control (Lester Risley) on 27 January 1978, to be converted to airtankers. Registration N217AK was reserved for this aircraft, but in the end Mr. Risley was unable to complete the deal and none of the aircraft ever left Japan. Instead, all eleven were repossessed by the US Navy on 23 January 1979 and ten were subsequently broken up for scrap. The eleventh Tracker (ex 4108) went to South Korea for display at the War Memorial of Korea in Seoul.
