Single Most Photographed Plane

Mon Dec 24, 2007 4:44 am

I was browsing the multitude of aircraft pictures located on this fine site and thought to myself, "I wonder what the most photographed plane was." I started searching a few key planes that I figured would be highly photographed and this is what I found (all searches were exclusively done on this site).

Continental 777 N77017 "Peter Max" plane, 297 pictures
Boeing "Dreamlifter" N780BA, 23 pictures
Concorde G-BOAE, 239 pictures
Howard Hughes "Spruce Goose" H4 Hercules N37602, 22 pictures
Boeing 747 (Air Force One) 92-9000, 156 pictures
Boeing 747 (Air Force One) 82-8000, 104 pictures
John Travolta Boeing 707, N707JT, 202 pictures
Airbus A380 F-WWJB 157 Pictures
Singapore Airlines A380 9V-SKA 43 pictures
Southwest "Shamu" N334SW, 89 pictures
Southwest "Arizona One" N383SW 101 pictures
Southwest "Lone Star" N352SW 101 pictures
Quantas 747 "Wunala Dreaming", VH-OJB , 295 pictures

Any other single plane photographed or sought after more than the "Peter Max" plane?

AN-225 perhaps, only one flying? Re-registered from the Soviet registration? CCCP-82060 got +40 pics in the album

It's amazing how United trumps all other airlines in terms of being photographed. They have more than the next 5 highest airlines combined.

This far and no one has noticed that the OP spelt QANTAS wrong!!!!!!!!!!!! You should be ashamed of yourself.....

Also Wunala is VH-OEJ, which has 257.

I would think away from here is would have been sam 2800(Air force 1 ) or the Concordes, I dont know if they limit the number of photos of one particular plane on here or not unless its gone through several liveries or changed ownership 10 times
i can see for 80 miles

There have been 2 Wunala Dreamings, VH-OJB is a 744 that is currently flying with QF in normal livery and OEJ is a 744ER

If your camera sends text messages, that could explain why your photos are rubbish!

Not really since it's the demo bird that does pretty much every large airshow in Europe.

Like the Swiss Connie which has 335 entries albeit with 2 regi's(N73544, HB-RSC), that's more then the J-055.

Regarding J-055 it also does an extremely photo-friendly display. Usually comes closer and slower than other teams, and always does a slow right turn just after takeoff. I don't think there's anyone that has photographed it that doesn't have the shot of it turning away with the burner on, smokewinders puffing away....
It takes a big man to admit they are wrong, and I am not a big man.
