I thought there was something oddly familiar about this 747-400 and sure enough I was right when I noticed it was listed as a 747-475. This one was ordered by Canadian Airlines but somehow it went to Varig and then Air New Zealand. Canadian Airlines ended up with three 747-475 and one 747-4F6, 'F6' del May 1995, which is Philippine Airlines' Boeing customer code and oddly after many years with Canadian, she returned to Philippine Airlines in 2004 and was last seen on A.net in May 2013. This whole swapping orders business may have been due to the world economic slowdown caused by that first dustup in 'the Gulf' but I digress.
