Actually, that was a 747-206B (reg: N746SA) that arrived in BNA
around 1315 from ANC
. The trip to BNA
originated in Khabarovsk, Russia (KHB / UHHH) and only stopped in ANC
for a short while (similar to our 6 days-a-week China Air Cargo 744F visitors). Oddly enough, it looks as if someone caught a picture of it in KHB before it left for BNA
I walked over to the old tower and took a few photos of it (which didn't turn out well enough to be on a.net) about 30 minutes before they departed for EBLG (Belgium)... It got dark on me, but I sat at the Vultee viewing area and watched them leave anyway.
The name of the aircraft is "Wilbur Wright" and there was a small blurb near the door stating that the craft is "Operating for Lufthansa Cargo".
I originally saw it coming in over West Nashville around 1310 and hopped on the web (flytecomm.com and fboweb.com) trying to figure out who in the world it was.
