Term used in the aircraft manufacturing industry to describe built, but unsold, aircraft.
Aircraft ordered and paid for by an airline are painted in the company's livery before delivery. Unsold aircraft are painted all white while waiting on a company to buy them.
In the early days of Airbus, they had several white tail A-300's on the ramp at Toulouse until Pan Am bought them.
