Looks like this one flies for Ukraine. If this is supposed to make it less visible, fail.

Thanks Gavin!

Thanks Mike, might even have been on this one then.

Damn, I delete my photos with bad heat haze. Might have to upload stinker sometime - grin! Good on ya John for another insight.

That's far more reasonable than just 'oops, we forgot'. Thanks Robin.

Nit pickers keep to yourselves. Why can't you just enjoy a great photo? Brian gives us some great shots. That's what I want to see.

Great photo Ed.

That pm light is crazy. Well used in a great series of pics.

Written on 23/09/2020 by Gavin Hughes

Would love to be in that location. Great shot John.

Written on 23/09/2020 by Gavin Hughes

That is so much better than good - that livery is stunning, great photo.

Sometimes it's all about the timing - great photo.

Written on 23/09/2020 by Gavin Hughes

Stunning looking camouflage, brilliant photo.

Written on 23/09/2020 by Gavin Hughes

Nice looking plane. Great shot to compliment it.

Likin' your DC-9s John.

Great pic!

Great shot. Captures the beauty of the Queen.

Brian Buckley - BRAVO times 3!!! Great picture. Thank you for the details. And I agree with your remark to the other individual. If I was a fussy poster, I could pick on the date format as it isn't as commonly used in the States. But, the world doesn't revolve around me and I can easily interpret the information.

Written on 23/09/2020 by David Plummer

It was a great to see UPS order so many new 747-8 Freighters, but I'm still saddened that Boeing decided phase out production. Given the number of recent 747-400 retirements, I hope we will see a good number of P2F conversions. With the flood of retirements, aircraft valuations must be lower than the pre-COVID business environment. As others have said, the Queen of the Skies is one fo the most beautiful aircraft ever put in service.

Low fuel, light cargo, HIGH PITCH ATTITUDE!
Climbs like a Banshee!!!!
The windscreen visibility out of the DC-10/MD-11 series aircraft is the best
Superb shot.

My gosh, love this photograph and aircraft!
Very well done.

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

The photographer and his tribute are simply superb!
Maybe those guys up in Alaska can use her for decades to come.
I sure hope so.
Thank you!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Superb photograph!
I remember my USAF days when the C-17 was referred to as the Airline Training Aircraft; because, the flight deck was reportedly so similar to commercial aircraft.
True?

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Looks like this is a Chartered 747 with the livery being Atlas.
At least we still have one passenger 747-400 still flying.
That is wonderful to me!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

So, it looks like this 747-400 had its last flight on 09.17.2020, this writing as of 09.22.2020?
Hope it is still flying.
Can't stand the thought of never flying commercial again the 747s.
Just heart breaking!!!!!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Great comment by Paul Kavanagh - Love it!
Loved flying as a pax in the Metro.
I'd sit up front if possible to watch the pilots working the yokes, etc.
Really a superb photograph!!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

The "sunglasses" effect windscreen is particularly popular with me!
Love the 787-900 with its extreme range and efficiency.
What will those engineers do next?
Oh wait, I have a suggestion: 100% electric engines that extract electrical power right out of the thin air, just like Nicola Tesla did more than 100 years ago to power his automobile for forty years without ever using a drop of petroleum.
FAT CHANCE OF THAT HAPPENING ANYTIME SOON!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Yet another long-range aircraft with excessive thrust capabilities.
Love it and its capabilities.

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Superb shot of likely of one of the two oldest 747s still flying.
Note the updated engine cowlings, if not also upgraded engines.

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Unbelievable that the DC-9 Series 10 is still flying commercially!
There you go Douglas Aircraft - built to last and take a beating.
Also really appreciate the operator keeping the Douglas legacy alive.
Thank you Jake!!!!

Well, Robert Cowling, agreed, fascinating time to study.
Moreover, the skulls of Rah and his son King Tut were permitted to be DNA tested, and, the objective findings were that the DNA/skulls did not originate from any genome on this planet; and, were defacto extra-terrestrial.
Be sure to read the book Selected by Extraterrestrials.
Would love to spend some quality time with those Nordic Secretaries!

NOW THAT'S A GREAT SHOT!!!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Yes, quite a while ago.
Thought UAL was bucking the trend for a second or two.
EXCELLENT PHOTOGRAPH!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Looks a little late in the day for this aircraft to be wearing the custom fit aircraft sunglasses.
Such a beautiful photograph of this well-styled aircraft, especially the front part of the aircraft.

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Mostly agree Cole Neill about the millennials apparently typing all in lower case; and, it being improper English writing.
As for Brian, do agree also that some information is better than none at all, and, all essential information is present to include the seldom seen DATE OF PHOTOGRAPH - BRAVO!
Meanwhile, the photograph is absolutely superb Brian - THANK YOU!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Yes, Michael McGuire, the 747 line is the most beautiful and desirable, subsonic, commercial aircraft conceived to date, IMHO.
The 747 cargo versions and the few 747SPs will be around for perhaps many more decades.
The 747-800 Cargo and Air Force One versions should last even longer.
Bravo!

Written on 22/09/2020 by ROBERT MILLS JR

Excellent photo and even better comment above by Roland Hebert!
I loved the Merlin Metroliners, and, rode in both the 800 HP and 1,000 HP versions.
Use to fly in them out of Fresno, CA (FAT) regularly to connect in either SFO or LAX to go XC to the east coast.
They were to best to me of all of the commuters; and, yes, NOISY - wore attenuating headsets as I still do always.

Seldom do such aircraft use full power on their take-off runs, so, to extend engine life and conserve fuel, usually if their load factors are less than maximum.
Such is obvious to me from my regular flights on SWA especially, etc., with the partially advanced throttles, because, all of the center seats being open per COVID19 guidelines.
I've been on fully loaded jumbos that spool-up to 100% power before brake release, so, to get off the ground in high density altitude/load factor conditions.
I been on a TIA DC-8-63 circa 08/08/1975 that spooled up to maximum before brake release, and, we barely survived the take-off out of CPH (Copenhagen, DN), barely avoiding striking the opposite-end approach landing lights.
I do also remember that flight the step-climbing all the way to cruise altitude for 62 minutes to 32,000'.
Great photograph of the most popular jumbo lineage forever, the 747.

Awesome report by Skylab72 above regarding this aircraft.
Thank you!

The eye of Rah?

Ahh, but it's actually Horus! Horus is the Egyptian winged God of the Sun. So cool!!! Ancient Egypt was a very superstitious area. They had numerous 'Gods', for everything in their world. But to an uneducated race, they have to try to view their world in a way they can comprehend. The Sun comes up every morning, so it has to be from a God. The crops are planted, they are gathered, they survive, all at the whim of a God. I don't know how much farther advanced we are today.

But that time is fascinating to study. Just amazing...

Daddy, can I have both of them for my birthday and Christmas celebrations.
