Yep. She just arrived, 18:55 local time on 9L. Unfortunately, it was totally dark by that time. The 747 stopped for a few minutes near Terminal 4, so that is where it was easiest to take photos. I will yet again be uploading one of the shots to a.net shortly.

Sweet shots N864DA. Hard to make that ugly paintscheme look pretty but man, you used that angle and the lighting and got the most interesting shot of that plane I've seen.
Two 747s in FLL were quite common during the 90s with Wardair and Air Canada being on the ground simultaneously on Saturdays
Are you sure that was in the 90's? And do you mean Nationair insted of Wardair? I've seen photos of a Nationair/TWA hybrid 747 at FLL, I think that was in the late 80s though. Never of Wardair, although the latter did have an A310 flying for Canadian Airlines and that was probably a casual visitor to FLL. I was in FLL on a saturday back in 94 and I saw no 747s. Saw Lauda Air and Condor, plus that oddball Balkan 767 that was there too. That was about it for intl widebodies.
