Today I was going to a shop near DOH (Doha International Airport, Doha, Qatar) When suddenly i heard a roar and then saw a beautiful retro looking 747 Classic taking off. I don't know if it is a 747-100 or 747-200. The typefont was very retro looking and there were big block letters that read XXX International. I couldn't read the first word thats why i put XXX. It had black and green markings if my memory serves.
Can anyone help me identify it please.
Also if anyone nows which airline/government operates this 747 does anyone know the reason it is in DOH. Does it have anything to do with the extra US forces being deployed in Qatar?
Any help will be appreciated and i would thnk in advance all who reply.

Yup...In fact go to http://www.evergreenairlines.com/ They are a charter company that is based out of Mcminnville Oregon. They maily fly 747's but do have a DC-9 up here in ANC that is available for charter.
They also own the museum that houses the Spruce Goose and the own the aircraft storage facility at Marana Arizona.
