Nice pic! Note that there are no antenna´s on the wing tips!! Haven´t seen any B747-200s without them before. I know that some of the last produced B747-300 was also without them!

any a/c in their livery looks good...

Does anyone know who is behind the design?....it's one of the nicest out there.

I've always admired Saudi Arabian's livery. It's highly warm and imaginative. The picture's opening now...

Oh it looks fantastic.

The flag has to go though. It slightly ruins it. Maybe sticking it at the back would make it perfect!

SV regularly operates both 747F and MD-11F.

I agree that SV's color or one of the best in thskies. Wish they woiuld improve thier ground service though!

Isn't the new livery a Landor job?

I think the antenna happens to be exactly on the thin line! Look closely.

Probably, like 90% of all liveries...

The shape of the wingroot is also not right for a -200, but appears to be from a -400 series. Is it possible this is a winglet-less -400?

The new SV livery is bold and attractive. One of the best around! All aircraft look good in it!
I dumped at the gybe mark in strong winds when I looked up at a Porter Q400 on finals. Can't stop spotting.

A number of late-build 742 and 743s have 744 style wingroots. This particular Saudi example was deliveredy in 89, which is after the 744 began production.
See my homepage for a comprehensive guide to spotting and photography at HKG
