SAS B747 fleet was composed by 283B and B Combi models. All were equiped with the P&W JT9D7Q engines except LN-RNA and SE-DFZ who were equiped with P&W JT9D-70A

These two B747 had only 3 and 5 windows on the right side beetween the door 1 and 2. But on the attached picture, it is possible to see a JT9D-70A powered SAS B747 with all the window range beetween the two doors...

Any info about this???

Thank you


SAS 747

SAS later installed the transverse galley which was located between door 1 and 2 on the right side.

Other carriers like KLM, Thai also use this galley setup.

Quoting DID747 (Thread starter):
These two B747 had only 3 and 5 windows on the right side beetween the door 1 and 2.

If memory serves, by the time you got to the -200 747s they all had the full set of windows. However some operators had them plugged except for 3 or 5 for commonality with the rest of the fleet.

While we are on SK 747s, one of them was called "Huge Viking", a little pun based on the English meaning. "Huge" is an old fashioned Nordic name, in keeping with the SK naming tradition.

Also Pan Am's 747SPs and I believe some other SPs.
