Aircraft in storage

In view of the current situation, numerous aircraft have been put into storage. This is the place to inform others where certain aircraft are parked.
Let's hope the disruption is short.

I am not an Aircraft Spotter but I am really interested to know what aircraft are being stored where.

Out of interest, would we be talking storage meaning fully mothballed? or just parked up ready for immediate use? As I'm guessing the latter will involve some kind of maintenance still, ie regular flight checks being carried out.

BA is reportedly about to send up to 40 of its aircraft, presumably narrow-bodies, to Bournemouth for storage.

BA also have several heavies over at CWL mothballed BYGB YMMO and a few others. As already reported, lots of narrowbodies at GLA & PIK. A lot of the Cityflyer LCY based Embraers are stored at NWI presently. Strange as NEOZ and TTNL were delivered recently and in service although 'NL doesn't appear to have moved from LHR since last week. I presume most of all these are hot spares so could be used if needed and yes would need keeping airworthy. St Athan ECUBE solutions took a number of A319s recently and CIVM for breaking/part out as well.

I noticed today a couple of Virgin A330s tucked into the SW corner of Heathrow, more or less level with the threshold of 09R.

Surely not enough space for that total?

Tons of space at BOH for that number. Two disused runways, for a start.
