I wonder why there is no photo on a.net, no photo on the whole internet to be precise, about the very first 747 Atlas Air operated. Thats N747MC, which was leased for more than 2 years (94-97), not just a few months, which makes it even more strange no picture can be found. All other Atlas aircraft are well recorded.

Quoting M404 (Reply 1): Guess what. It's on the homepage of this very site.
That the first newbuilt 747-400F of Atlas Air, not the first 747 of Atlas Air.
I asked for N747MC, the picture you posted says N491MC. Btw, the date is wrong too.
So, please at least read such vital info before posting.

There are quite some airliners from the early and mid 1990s not to be found on Internet, as it was just before the days of Digital pictures and uploading. Probably the older photographers give more priority to scanning and uploading old BOAC and Pan Am pictures and so on and leave out many other significant aircraft.
I found some other examples of aircraft which were all over the place in the 1980s or 1990s but don't have pictures on Airliners.net, for instance
JA8533 and JA8536 of JAL, N141AA, N142AA, N146AA, N148AA, N152AA, N153AA and N161AA of American, N162AA of Hawaiian, CC-CJN of LAN Chile, PK-GIA in Continental livery, HL7339 of Korean Airlines, 9V-SDD, 9V-SDE, 9V-SDF of Singaprore Airlines, I-DYNB of
Alitalia, 87-0117, 87-0121, 0122, 0123 of the USAF
MD-11s are much better covered but so far I didn't find some 1990s liveries ;
HL7373 of Korean Air none in pax configurations
N280WA with World or Garuda before 1994
B-150 and B-152 in old China Airlines colours
N1757A USAfrica AW
Obviously the older and smaller the type is, the more registrations that are not (yet) covered in the database.
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?
