Never Seen 747 In FRA Yesterday...! Who Knows It?

Yesterday (Thursday 9th Juli'10) around 6 pm local time in FRA i've seen a 747 landing in a c/s i've never seen before and where on earth can i find somebody who might know it if not here...

So please could somebody help me  

The plane itself was white with a, IFRC also white tail, but the strange was the front completely painted in orange.
From the far distance i've seen it, it looked like a 747 from TNT. I also think that i've recognized winglets so a -400 version is the most possible one. The orange paintig fainted out to the rear of the a/c and continued at least to the beginning of the wings.

Thanks in advance

TNT's 744s are frequent visitors at FRA, usually in the Emirates Cargo c/s but a TNT-liveried aircraft is subbed sometimes.
Did you get a good look at the rear? TNT's 744s have a smallish logo printed on the tail and a larger one just in front of the stabilizer. If the aircraft you saw was completely white at the rear, it wasn't TNT.

Thanks BlueFlyer, you're one of those who make this forum what it is...!

I'm pretty sure this was one of these TNT birds but as i said, i've never seen one of it and i must admit i didn't even search for a TNT 747... :S How embarrassing!

Thanks for the fast reply
