Indeed for some reason there are no decent pictures of it.
But having the correct registration was my main concern. Thanks UA947!

The aircraft I am looking for was painted in the blue-red stripes Boeing house colours, and just a very low quality image of it ex...

Re: Why Didn't Swissair and Sabena order The 747-400?

Because they decided to move forward with the A340 instead. Swissair wasn't very loyal to Boeing, other than being the launch customer for the 747-300. The Classic 747 is the only Boeing (if you don't count McDD) model Swissair has ever bought. Sabena was, for a long time, a Boeing customer since t...
