Globe Jet's OD-ZEE II

L-1011-500, OD-ZEE, MSN 293B-1239 was impounded at Viru Viru International airport (Santa Cruz - Bolívia) after LAB ceased its operations, earlier this year. The aircraft is still stored at VVI and its future doesn't seem very bright unless the $4m owed is paid.

You can see here a photo of this aircraft taken last September. OD-ZEE was the old TAP Air Portugal's flagship with registration CS-TEA.
