Visitor from the US, I can guess the airline it used to serve with; Air New Zealand! Ex ZK-NZY. Can always spot a kiwi

Nothing beats a 747 :) great to see her back flying :)

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 31, 2012:
She's been de-virginized!! :) Like the heat coming off the engine thrust exhaust. Classic old plane!

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 31, 2012:
Even en Ex-Virgin colors, she is still beautiful! Great Shot!

No prizes for guessing the previous airline...

Great 747 Bird wish to see all 747 boeing jumbos in great use instead of the bone yards!!!

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 18, 2010:
Not so much a virgin anymore, I'll have a go around the world inside her though anytime!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Mon October 18, 2010:
Great pic! To Finland visitor, yes you're absolutely right - the same reason you always see aircraft in the factory with the rudder fully painted. It's a balancing thing.

A visitor from Finland posted Mon October 18, 2010:
Looks like quick spray to cover titles as the new owner is not allowed to use them.
Is painting the rudder more delicate job? It's not painted so i assume it requires more time and effort not to affect it's balance or something...

A visitor from United States posted Mon October 18, 2010:
Ha! Looks like she's having an identity crisis :)

A visitor from Croatia posted Mon October 18, 2010:
It seems they lost the paint just in the middle of tail painting.
