As a fan of the 747 since a long time, I would like to complete my color photo collection about this wonderful aircraft. I need some photos about the "Air Algerie 747-227B N-8284V and N-8285V" and "Libyan Arab Airlines 747-2L5B 5A-DIJ and 5A-DIK" please.
So if someone has some photos about these aircrafts, I'm very interrested. I've got a very big photo collection with a lot of very rare birds so The exchange is possible and I can send a lot of photos to everyone interrested.

I did not receive any answer to my question and it's not a surprise!!!!!!!!!!
The photos about these 747s are very, very rare.
Since many , many years I try to obtain all the existing photos about these 747. It's a long search. I went to Paris aviation book shops, London and Honolulu aviation store in the airport too.
After search in the past books and archives and old magazines I found some small photos but not very interresting.
A day, I decided to send a message to Boeing. After months and months of contacts with a lot of persons at the boeing factory,I was still without any results. And a day I receive a message from them where they told me: after a lot of questions about me, my life, the use of the requested photos, they accepted to sell me photos about the Libyan aircraft. I was very happy.
Some days after I received a Boeing letter with the photos( very expensive) but very rare. What a nice day.
It was the same operation for Air Algerie one year later. But there are some conditions for the use of these photos and mainly do not put them on the web.
Since, I found some new photos about these planes but in poor quality.
Today I would like to find more photos about them but under more angles. So it is my request to all of you.
