OK, it was an ex-United 747, but it caused me to do a double take when I saw it. The logo and name had been removed, but the paint scheme was unchanged, except for the 3D-xxx registration, making it registered, if not necessarily operated in Swaziland. Anyone know the history or operator?

The aircraft that was registered in Afghaistan has indeed been reregistered
under the 3D- Swaziland prefix. There is a great topic on this very aircraft on the pprune site regarding the legality of the aircraft and its crews.
Apparently the aircraft is non-airworthy and the crews are not legal.
