I am wondering about the 747-400 on the top of Airliners.Net pages. Notice it? If you don't understand what I'm talking about, scroll to the top of the page and you'll see a Boeng 747-400 with little "switches" above the wings that say "E-Mail", "Use Photos", "Add Photos", and "Home". What is the history of this plane. Is this computer graphics? Not real? What is its tail number and who operated it?

It´s a Northwest 747-451 in the old colours. Thats for sure. But the registration numbers of NWs 747-400s start with N661US. And only the very first of these NW-planes carried the old livery because the airline changed to the current paint scheme in that year (1989).
I suppose its the first delivered 747-451, registered N663US because its the most photographed.

SashA, I don't think they were able to see the tail number, BUT, it was said in the prior posts that only one 744 was painted in the old livery, and if the registration number for that one is known, then thats how they got it

1) Why don't we E-Mail Johan or just throw a fit about it until he spills the beans?
2) Do you play hearts? If you do you know what card to play without knowing what the others are holding because you know which ones have already been thrown down. Actualy, a lot of card games work this way. If you watch aviation closely enough, just about every airplane has some unique feature. The 747-400 debuted just before Northwest (then Northwest Orient) changed it's livery. No, it's not photo-shop edited, those winglets are real and...
3) That's the horizon you see reflected, if you look closely you can make a small mountain or hill and a row of light clouds a bit higher.
