For starters, it is a 747-300... Don't think any 747-400s are old enough to have their winglets torn off for spares yet.

Actually, if i kinda squint, I think I can see winglets on there, albeit grey ones. Maybe this is the mysterious albino 744 that was seen at Nice so long ago.....

It has grey winglets if you look closely.

No idea which aircraft this is...

The phantom 747 rears its head again!

Ryanair - plenty of 744s have been seen without winglets for one reason or another (some in flight, I might add)

I might be totally wrong, but the first idea that came to my mind was Nigeria Airways:

I know, they do not operate any 744s (yet?), and I know it's their old colours, but who knows? Anyway, it's just an idea.
