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.

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. http://www.airliners.net/photo/TNT/B...d=1769753b9f3022d44b7c28513fa4976b
