Continental 747 In HNL

Wed Jan 05, 2000 7:25 am

Hello again,

I took a photo of a Continental 747-200 in HNL in August '92. The reg. was N78020.

Unfortunatelly I couldn't find this reg in any of my airline-fleet-lists!

Anybody knows the history, actual location of this Jumbo? And how long it was in service with Continental?

Thanks for your help.
