About 230PM I spotted a newly painted 747-100/200 approaching SAT on RWY 12R. The plane was all white and I could not see any identifying logo. I checked Flightaware and could find no 747 arrival at SAT for 11/7.. Does anyone know about this A/C?

My two guess' are.
1) It was an All White Connie 747-200 coming in under RCH (Reach) on a AMC flight, hence why no flightaware track.

2) It was an Atlas 747-200 coming in under the RCH (Reach) on a AMC flight, hence why no flightaware track.

My bet is Connie since they have a few 747-200s that are all white and I saw one come into YIP from SNN about 2 months ago. IIRC only a few 744s for Atlas are all white (used for the China Air flights). The 747-200s doing AMC flights for Atlas/Polar still have the tail blue.

Actually, it was a 747SP. I spotted it in the late morning directly over LAS putting out a contrail. At the time, she was moving at well over 600MPH. It came out of Sacramento, but the flight number was blocked on F/E.
