N601US looks like an almost new plane to me. Great to see the oldest 747 still in service with its original operator.
I thought NW retired it at the beginning of this year.
Its definetely worth to be donated to a museum rather than to see the scrappers torch soon.

When my mom was working for Northwest Orient...I flew on this 747.....glad to see it still flying....frankly, I would like to see NWA keep flying it as a backup or whatever...let it be a "flying museum" for all of us....

You say the 747-100 goes from MSP to Osaka? Four years ago, I flew on a 747 from MSP to Osaka, It was either a -100 or a -200. I can't tell the difference. ...maybe???
I'm pretty sure it was a 200, what do you think?
(BTW...I thought today MSP-KIX is operated by a -200. Did they change that?)
