RE: PAL 744 With Missing Winglet At SFO Today

Nope, not a 747-300...

It was a clear accident, there were wires (?) hanging out the starboard wing-end... port wing still had it.

Didn't catch the reg, but seeing as PAL has only 4 744s, and only 1 of them is at SFO on any given day, shouldn't be too hard to sleuth out.
