It has taken years to get this airplane with conditions like this in Vancouver. Finally it happened, and the result is amazing! Perfect mountain background and a beautiful looking airplane!

No doubt about it. It is difficult to get all of these conditions to intersect in time and space. This aircraft and a nearly crystal clear atmosphere in Vancouver B.C. make for a rare photo op.

I was lucky to have seen this beautiful aircraft at Johannesburg International on a number of occasions. Stunning bird with the beautiful snow capped mountains in the background.

This is a spectacular composition of color. I'd love to use this as my desktop background, if permitted to do so!

Wunala Dreaming + Canadian Rockies = Utterly Gorgeous!! Well done and it would've made one hell of a sight to see in person.

I am so happy to know that the wonderful OEJ Livery is still here! I thought that they had cancelled it! Great Shot with the mountains!

An excellent photo of this unusual aircraft. I flew on this B747 from Melbourne to LA in 2003. Inside it's the same as any other 747 but outside it's totally different! Photo shows nice contrast with the reds and snow capped mountains.
