What is the a/c in the background? The only time 4-engine a/c visited WAW was AF1 ( twice) and BA 744 emergency (in 1995 i think). Any ideas?

Hmm, i think you are right.
Since when ElAl operates 742 to WAW? Or is it some kind of charter?

Indeed. Interesting question, what was it doing there?

I first thought that it was a 743, due to the antenna-like thing at the end of the wing.

It was also the subject of much discussion on the boards recently as El Al do not appear to use gates, preffering to use steps:

CPH-R,

That "antenna-looking thing" sticking out of the trailing edge wingtip is the HF Radio Antenna.

I'm not sure what all the fuss is about. OAG clearly lists El Al as operating 747s on TLV-WAW.

Support Airliners.net - become a First Class Member!

There are periods during the year when groups do a program called "March of the Living" and other such programs geared towards visiting the Nazi Death Camps and then coming on to Israel to affirm the Holocaust and the Redemption of the Jewish People.

Also Israeli High School students have a similar program of visiting the Death Camps.

This is why there is often high capacity to Warsaw - and 747s are operated.

Besides the fact that the aircraft in question is obviously an LY 747, what do you mean 4 engine aircraft have never been to WAW? I do believe that the IL-62 has 4 engines. Doesn't it?


Quit calling an airport ramp "Tarmac" and a taxiway "runway".

Backfire - where does it say this on OAG? I've just looked at flight schedules there for the next week and the only flight listed is a LOT flight on a 737-400, LY have a codeshare on this.
