Yes,the 747 is indeed a lovley aircraft that takes the cake for majestic pictures of takeoff/landing.But when you put it in a United color scheme,it looks to grey.Now,I'm not insulting UA's livery,but,it is simply not made for a 747 (just like the SWISS livery looks bad on an MD-11).

I still remember seeing my first 747 as a wide-eyed 10-year-old, along with my first flight two years later, when these Pan Am birds were brand new. I dare say, after more than three decades, the Jumbo has lost none of its majesty.
The aeroplane has unveiled for us the true face of the earth. -Antoine de Saint-Exupery

Oh, Lax, you got me with the original PanAm 747 and livery. First flew it in May 1970 (as an infant, of course), and the love affair has never ended. First, last and always the Queen of the Skies.
