What do the titles on "Friendship One" say? On all of the photos I've found on the net it's too small to be legible. There don't appear to be any photos of N147UA while it was wearing the Friendship One titles on this site.

Thanks in advance  Smile

Hi Tito,

The 'Friendship One' was a flight to raise money for the children's charities. At the same time, the flight would try to set a new world record for flying around the world. The flight was a success.

Read the full story and see photos of N147UA with the 'Friendship One' titles on the 747SP Website.

I'll have a closer look on the original slide when I get home today and ready the small writing under the 'Friendship One' titles.
