So this is Dr. Evil's answer to Mr. Power's jumbo jet with the rotating laser. Jokes aside, this is indeed a very rare bird. Chris, thanks for sharing.

A brilliant shot indeed! I'd love to travel on this 747 one day and watch everyone's surprised faces as we land at the airport!

Sinister looking. Is there nothing that Boeing can not do?
