When N702SW, Seaboard's second Boeing 747-200F, reached the end of its service life with Airfleet Express, a British airline, it was scrapped at Manston in the U.K. The nose gear doors were given to Eric Tarrant who used to work for Seaboard as an avionics technician at Heathrow. After a lot of work on his part removing paint from the doors, the registration number was revealed.

These doors might be the only remaining artifacts from Seaboard's magnificent B‑747 freighters.
