I was recently at Chicago O'hare Airport (ORD) just to spot planes. My favorite thing was seeing all the 747 cargo planes (I didn't know a lot of these airlines existed!). I saw one that really puzzled me. It was a 747-200 (as I remember) with a teal/white body and a teal tail. The only words on it was CARGO in big red caps letters.
What airline is this and why is it painted like this?

That's odd. I mean, I can see flying an all-white non-marked plane if you're worried about security, but that's just a typical El-Al paint job without the title. I don't know who they think they're fooling - there must be some other reason.

There's 3 of those ELAL cargo 747's flying around in an all white colourscheme.
All white with just the red 'CARGO' sign on them. It also flew around with 'HERTZ' titles. I think there's a few pictures on airliners.net.
