Is the Planetarium going to be closed ?
BTW the 720B at Karachi is painted all white. Maybe getting new paint ?

They should temporarily move the 720 to a hanger at Lahore airport and restore it to prevent further corrosion

I recently came by Lahore and had a chance to stop by the planetarium. Here is what I learned:
- Planetarium is still funded by and will continue to be funded by PIA.
- AXL will be moved up slightly to be more in the open courtyard rather than in the corner it is in right now.
- It will receive a fresh paint and be new livery compliant. (They have the go ahead for it, just waiting for civil work to be finished).
- Current state is very appalling. Paint ripping off. Rust on body. Being used as makeshift shelter/shed for ongoing sewerage work.
I took several pictures up close and far away. Will post later.

I get the same feeling, the construction will damage the aircraft for sure.
