Re: TWA 747 Operations

In the 70's you had TW760/761 SFO-LAX-LHR-CDG all 747. There were also 747's between ORD and LAS in the 70's. In 1980 there was TW904/903 JFK-MAD-BCN. MAD-BCN was really short. The BCN run was mostly done via LIS JFK-LIS-BCN with 747 ( TW901 westbound if I´m not mistaken ) . In winter they were rep...

Bare metal or silver belly on 747-400

Is the 744 the last jumbo with silver belly ? I found this picture and if I´m not wrong, Varig also used bare metal for the belly. Only a few 744 wore those elegant silver bellies. A pity we see this no more... 0058243 Is there any reason behind? I know that new airplanes are made mostly of composit...
