CO 744 Flying IGS Kai Tak?!

Sun Dec 02, 2001 3:30 am



Is this a fake? I ran across it searching for a picture of a Continental 741! Please tell me if this is real. If it is not, then it is a good fake. I would think that it would be though, CO had orders for 2 744s from SQ, but cancelled them.

That guy's whole site is filled with fantasy photos (he says so himself on the front page).

Excuse me, but what does God need with a starship?

Look carefully, it is an LH 744, he just did a little "photoshop work" on the paint scheme.
