Have a look at this picture and tell me what airline and what model of 747 it is. China Airlines is 100% wrong.

I agree, it looks like Aerolineas Argentinas B747-200. The engines don't look like of the B744's.

I agree with Mr.BA, this is an Aerolineas Argentinas 747-200, old livery.

Definately Aerolineas, you can see the Argentinian flag under the cheatline. The engines are decidedly JT9Ds from a classic 747 and there is no wing/body fairing as on the B747-400.

I can tell this is not a 744 from its flap positions.

that's all I can tell.

classic 747s have bigger flaps when they are fully extended. 744s' flaps are a bit smaller and extend downwards more than classic 747s.
