Remark Photographer
G-GSSD (cn 37561/1442) Atrocious weather conditions this morning greeted the first 748 for BA World Cargo from KPAE, she touched down at 07.27 GMT in heavy rain. Seen taxiing to the cargo ramp for her superfluous water salute.

Look at how long and amazing this aircraft is!

A visitor from - posted Tue April 30, 2013:
We can tell this is the longest plane ever......
Love those engines!

A visitor from Brazil posted Tue December 6, 2011:
The 747 is, without question, the greatest jetliner ever made, and the 747-8, specially the freighter, which looks similar to the original model, is simply stunning, still the prettiest, forever the best!!!


A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri December 2, 2011:
Fourth of November! Great, I'll take this as an extra birthday present. To keep it British: it looks splendid. No wait: rather 'marvellous'! Would love to have a model of this.

Lengthy Beauty!

What a cool time to touchdown!

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat November 5, 2011:
Livery!742 or 748? must take a close look to see the difference.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Unique shoot. i like 747 shape....nothing else comparable

A visitor from Ireland posted Fri November 4, 2011:
What a good looking bird!

A visitor from Canada posted Fri November 4, 2011:
You must have been thrilled to get this John! Keep on shooting, Tom

Funny comment and we can notice how upset you were on the wx.

A visitor from - posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Great result anyway!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Big Bird!

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Let's hope her performance will exceed expectations and they order her Intercontinental sibling!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 4, 2011:
I'm an Airbus fan, but this is a great looking bird. Surely they could have waited a few more minutes and landed at 07:47:08 though!

A visitor from Qatar posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Beautiful! Love the BA colors on this stunning AC

You done it proud! Can't wait to get it myself, well done!

A visitor from France posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Very nice livery.... Nice successor of G-GSSA, painted only for a few months as such with "Chelsea Rose" tail in 2001.....

A visitor from United States posted Fri November 4, 2011:
She's a real beauty in BA colors, for sure. Now c'mon, BA, order the pax version 747-8I !!

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Absolutely stunning! Beautiful aircraft in a beautiful livery... I just wish the 7478i would be seen in the same, doubtful though...

A visitor from - posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Just to say, this is an absolute sight for sore eyes. No other livery complements the 747 lines like a British Airways one ;)

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Wow this looks really strange in a good way. Brilliant shot!!!

A visitor from Mauritius posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Now if we could only see what these colours look like on an intercontinental!

A visitor from United Arab Emirates posted Fri November 4, 2011:
Will this different design on the tail be used in all its commercial fleet too? Great capture! Great photo.
