Remark Photographer
7O-YMN (cn 21786/413) 'Yemenia 7000' seen gliding over the 405 Freeway on finals for RWY25L after a long haul direct from Paris Charles de Gaulle. As you can probably appreciate, this moment was quite an experience, one which I can never top or duplicate by fluke as it happened. Funnily enough, this is the first time I have ever seen a 747SP fly! This photo is dedicated to my good friend Jorge for his friendly hospitality during my stay and Steven for the heads up!

And to add to the previous comment: for clarity, tho maybe obvious, I would add something like 'while maintaining the wing and engine power'. Less weight, same lift and power=better performance... SP stood for 'Special Performance.'

A visitor from United States posted Tue July 24, 2012:
The idea behind the '47SP was to extend the range. Shorter aircraft = Less capacity/payload = Longer range. Pretty easy to understand if you ask me!

A visitor from - posted Mon July 23, 2012:
Never did understand the idea behind the '47SP. Basically it was standard 100-series with a front and rear fuselage section taken out and some wing/fight surface control mods like flaps if I remember correctly. In any event, I didn't even think these things were still flying!

Nice to see a 747SP in the 21st century !

A visitor from Canada posted Mon July 23, 2012:
I'd like to see this parked next to an 800 series for contrast.

Great pic! What was Yemenia doing here? Government flight?
