Where was it seen and what direction was it heading?? I can tell you is a 744, you probebly knew that anyway. Maybe a charter airline.

I think it could be BA but the contrail blocks a good view of the tail and logo so I'm not sure.

It's not BA, there is usually some red on the tail cone even though it's a small picture you can tell there is no red there.

Quoting PA101 (Reply 14):
Well, just look at it in "large". You can clearly read the "British Airways" letters on the side - and the color on the tail is red not gold...

Which one are you looking at? If it is the pic in Shamrock's post that was posted for comparison only, not the same pic. I certainly can't see "British Airways" on the original

Looks like it yeah but it cant be!
LH has a grey underbelly and the 1st pic has a dark blue one.

No aint it! The navy in the Landor Livery extends almost up ot the windows.
The Blue on the Pic above only goes up as far as the wings. Also the fuselage looks too pale, the Landor had a grey shaded fuselage

Maybe, Is it a 742 in the picture I cant really see??


25 AA777 : to me it looks like Lufthansa or United.... but i'm leaning towards UA. -AA777
26 AlitaliaMD11 : Looks a bit like an Aeroflot IL-96?
27 SQ325 : LH leaves the engines grey so I also tend to UA

33 KstateinALB : I'm thinking UA. I kinda see the old tail design in the picture.
34 Katwspotter : I agree with you on this one. I definately thinks its UA.
35 Boston92 : Wait a minute...Who said it was a 747? That is NOT a 747, look at the engine contrails, they are uneven like a A340. And there is no upper deck.
36 Boeing727flyer : I would say United on a Boeing 747-400
37 Corey07850 : My first guess was a UPS DC-8 but what do I know... It's hard to tell on a grainy picture the size of a postage stamp
38 FCA767 : If it was taken over the Netherlands then would BA be at a lower altitude by then for landing in london. Maybe it's united if they travel from the far

40 Mav75 : I definitely agree. You have too look really closely and squint, but I can make out a small "U" on the tail.
41 Imiakhtar : I agree. Looks like its got a red-blue stripe across the middle like MH.
42 Boston92 : Thank You! This is just rubbish, seeing as UA's logo is not even a "U", but more of a filled in "U". This argument can go on forever, no one will rea
43 Boston92 : Plus, that a/c is white, and if it was UA's new livery, than the tail would not even have anything that remotely looks anything like a "U".

51 Nosedive : Canadian's been gone for some time. I'm going with LH340 as well
52 An-225 : It's a UA 744 in old livery. It looks pretty clear to me. Alex.
53 ORDRyan28 : That was my initial guess, but it seems pretty clear that it's not. The yellow ball on the tail automatically eliminates UA from contention, and I do
