In September and October of 1997, I flew a British Airways 777-200 to LHR from DTW. I was looking through the photos for a BA 777-200 at DTW and there was only a 747-100 and a 747-200, which might be the same aircraft, but just a mistake. I don't know.
This aircraft, listed as a 747-100, G-AWNF, titled Blagdon Lake was taken August 21, 1999:
These are listed as 747-200s, but they might be 747-100s. The first one was shot July 2, 1999 and the last two June 19, 1999. They have no registration number or title in the comment area. Maybe someone can help me with this.

Only the first picture shows a series 747-136, the others are -236Bs. You can easily tell BAs now retired -100s from the -200Bs by looking at their engines: Only the 100s had P&W, the 200Bs have RR, completely blue coloured.

The first photo is a 747-136 of British Airways (obviously). The rest are all 747-236 due to the type of engine. The common mistake is people always assume if it doesn't have 3 windows on top then it's a -200. But Boeing did offer for $1 million per aircraft to install more windows. BA took up this option, as did others, notably United. So the only differentiation is in the engine. BA 741's all fly (or flew, seeing as most, if not all have been taken out of service) PW engines and all BA 742's fly RR, as only the PW was offered on the -100.
