Saw an interesting aircraft arrive here in ANC this morning, around 0500L. First heard it over frequency, United 1892 Heavy, which caught my attention because we usually don't see too many United heavies here, aside from the flurry of 777s we saw last month. Anyways, I took a ride out on the ramp to check it out, and was surprised to see a unique airplane. It was a plain blue and white aircraft, with United Charter printed along the side where just "United" would usually be.
I never knew United operated an aircraft like this. The tail was N194UA. I also found this:
What kind of configuration do they use? I am assuming it is all Y seating to maxmize seating since it is just used for charters, but I honestly don't have a clue.
Also found this old thread which includes some pictures and info about the aircraft:
United Charter 747-400 N194UA (by 71Zulu Jan 19 2012 in Civil Aviation)?
I would appreciate it if anybody could inform me as to what it was doing here in ANC from Eilson AFB, and also give me any information regarding how United uses it in general.
