Ja8965

Sat Apr 06, 2002 10:27 pm

Please search for JA8965 on the searchengine. It is a 747 from ANA. It has no winglets, but everyone says it is a -400 series. So what about it? Is it a -400 with its winglets cut off, or did all the photographers make a mistake?

There is no JA8965 in the database. It brings up 8962 and others.

Jaspike, that's very weird, my searches of ja8965 gives a 747-300(looks like that) with the photographers saying it is a -400. If it is working I have post some of the photos:

It says -400D. D is for domestic. They don't have winglets.

Winglets are good in high altitude cruise. On Japanese domestic sectors they aren't useful. They cost a lot and they weigh. The D version is a 400 but without winglets.

The 400 Domestic doesn't have winglets, and tend to have high MTOW, and have slightly beefed up wings and gear. They're still a 744 though, with the new wing, interior and avionics.

And since when was this non-aviation related?

As Jan Morgen said, it's a -400 wothout the winglets. I recall reading somewhere, that the winglets could be added, and it could become a -400.

Nope, I copied it straight from your post at the top.

ANA have swopped some of their domestic fleet of 747-400 to international by adding winglets. This was done to level out the number of cycles done ie a domestic short haul 747 will do more than a longhaul 747.

JA8957 was a domestic when i felw on it in 1996 but i have seen it since at LHR

More importantly, why is the Flight Crew trying to scrape all the alluminum off the underside of the empenage in the first photo?
