This shot is very close to my heart. With capturing EP-IAG, I have ticked off the 1st objective on my spotting bucket list - To click all of Iran Air's 747s that were active when I started spotting. This being a night shot highlights 2 distinct sections in the 747 which would have been indistinguishable during the day - the dark rear section with the cargo door and the fore passenger section. AZARABADGAN" seen here holding short of Rwy27 waiting to depart back to IKA as "IRAN AIR 811" with a 9 hour delay.

Hi ya, great shot. But sorry to dissapoint... IR's 742's have never carried cargo AFAIK, believe the floor was never reinforced,and they are actually in a all pax layout.it's only all dark because the lights are off and the pax are sitting forward of L4.
Still a fantastic shot tho'.

I agree with the rest, beautiful shot and one to remember forever. Seeing a 747 Classic in operation is very rare these days!!! Cheers, Roger Cannegieter

Excellent exposure to bring all that detail out, even the clearly visible rear main-deck cargo door. ;-)

A very nice shot of a classic B747 and an airport's surrounding at night.

I appreciate Iran Air for keeping their iron birds neat and airworthy.

This is a quite big challenge due to unjustifiable sanctions against acquiring new commercial planes or spare parts.

I am wondering why there is no lighting in the rear of the plane?

The lighting at back of plane is because it might be a Boeing 747-200Combi

Terrific shot of a classic 747. And one carrying passengers in 2014, no less. The wet night and the way is affects the light makes this shot extra special. Great job.
