Yeah, looks like the Ewa Concourse at HNL---certainly not one of the older concourses at SFO.

It sure is colorful.. I like it. It reminds me of Air Pacific/Fiji Airways' livery when they flew LAX-NAN on 767 and 747.

I never noticed this before, but it's really the UA Saul Bass livery with a yellow stripe on top.

Re ‘Sevoair’ Comment - Thanks for the prompt – that this photo was taken at Honolulu. My 29 year SFO memory fogbank is lifting.
I now recall that I tried to take a similar photo of JA8551 at the San Francisco Gate, but JAS staff would not let me into the Departure Lounge to do so, and I missed the photo opportunity there. However, JA8551 followed my aircraft (RAAF B707 A20-624) to Honolulu. I must have taken this Gate photo after deplaning from A20-624 in the Honolulu Terminal. Photo 'Location' and 'Caption' Corrections submitted. WN
