Scrapped Filton 747-200

Can anyone tell me what 747-200ís were scrapped at Filton airfield, especially if any were ex Korean?

Thanks in advance.

The only ones I know:G-MKAA - scrapped circa Aug12

5R-MFT - scrapped Dec05

G-MKDA - scrapped 2012

G-MKKA - scrapped 2012

I think one of these was ex-Berkut and ex-Korean Cargo.

Thanks guys.

Sod’s law that two of them were ex Korean cargo. I was really hoping to narrow it down to one!

A long shot I know but did anyone get to take any inside cockpit photos of G-MKAA or G-MKDA just before or during their scrapping?
