Not sure. The most recent 747 to arrive Birmingham, AL seems to have been a China Cargo Airlines plane late afternoon on July 3. Looks like it diverted to BHM enroute to ATL. Maybe this Great Wall Airlines jet was operating for China Cargo Airlines?

Hmm. Very possible, as it was parked on the cargo side, by FedEx and UPS.

Great Wall Airlines=China Cargo Airlines, IJ was merged into CK last year and there are still some 747's left flying in the old IJ colors.

Great Wall is "merged with" China Cargo Airlines, as is Shanghai Cargo Airlines.

This occurred in the first half of 2011.

This was a WX diversion into BHM from ATL. Gas and Go stop.

That's a long layover for a gas and go if it's still there today! And it is...
