It's a tragic story. This particular 744 has been diagnosed with a severe thyroid problem which has stretched the skin to the limits, and caused gangrene. This is one of the rare shots of the aircraft returning to the hospital after a trip to the Cancer Clinic for radiation therapy.
I'm sure I speak for all A.Netters when I say our thought and prayers are with this aircraft, which has done nothing to deserve this horrible medical condition, and we all wish it a speedy recovery.

I think this is the same condition Rosie O'Donnell and Roseanne have. It's called A380ism.  Wink

This is actually the new and improved, bigger than an A380, 747j.

Not sure if it will be available only as a freighter, maybe offered with a Tara-esque circular staircase in the middle but only in the VIP model (one of which is sure to be built).

Rumor has it that EK, SQ, QF and SW are ready to write checks immediately upon launch. EIS is currently planned for 2012 but is likely to actually happen in 2014. The size of the hinge pins is one of the nightmares of assembly. The pin is so long that 370 miles of road have to be closed between Portland and Everett when they are being transported on the purpose built 14 axle pin transporter.

But in the end with CAD and Google Earth, nothing is too complicated. If it can be imagined, it must be built.

C'mon guys, the original post seems genuine. Stop kiddin'.

It's the new Boeing Air transporter, based on a 747-400 platform. Boeing is having a Taiwanese company called Evergreen convert 3 aircraft for its own use in the 787 dreamliner project.

They will use it to carry huge amounts of air from greener parts of the world to regularly fill the Dreamliner cabins with fresh air.

Emirates has already announced its intention of placing an order for 100+ such aircraft. They plan to fill them up with dry desert air and export it to large polluted metropolis around the world.

Industry analysts estimate that the market for the 747-LCF (Large CleanAir Freighter) will be huge in years to come. A well known industry insider who currently wishes to remain anonymous said "This will be a breath of fresh air for the ailing airline industry. Curiously, Boeing took the lead over Airbus for this one since the A380 freighter will arrive on the market later".

Yes, but as already explained by another post, if it is posted in this way, the photographer does not get the hit count that the picture might deserve; the picture viewed through the thread starters post will not register a view on the actual shot. If you look, the thread starters picture has clocked over 300 hits already, hits that might otherwise have been logged deservedly against the photographers shot.

So, picky or not, it's not the correct way to link to a picture.
