Factory-Fresh! Note the bump on the nose -- In-flight refueling? Guess this is a VVIP bird

Interesting to see that this particular 747 still uses the original fan cowling. They were replaced by the latter design so long ago... rare and magnificent bird, long it may still fly!!!

747forever!!!

She looks well looked after

The cowling is the same on both engine Pods. What you see is the air aux doors open to allow more air in the inlet. They are spring loaded and close auto when the aircraft reaches enough speed to push them close. Normally close at speed above 150 Knots.
