I'm pretty sure that that is the 747-400 leased from LH to Condor in 1994. This would be the "transition" paint scheme, probably before returning to Condor. However, I don't recall the engines and belly being painted in yellow. A fake, perhaps?

Quoting Matt (Reply 1): 'm pretty sure that that is the 747-400 leased from LH to Condor in 1994.
Wasn't that plane leased to DE in order to make LH make flights to Taiwan?
Can someone enlighten me more about this rule that an airline who is flying to Taiwan is not allowed to fly to mainland China!
I think thats the reason, why there is/was for example British Asia Airways, Air France Asia, KLM Asia and Swissair Asia.

Comment: Ungewöhnlich sieht diese Lufthansa Boeing 747 nach großer Wartung in Johannesburg aus, nachdem es Probleme mit der Lackierung vor Ort gab. / An unusual livery is worn by this Lufthansa Boeing 747-400 after a D-check at Johannesburg. Apparently some minor problems occured during painting.
