With its four PW JT9Ds roaring in perfect harmony, our B747-300 effortlessly lifts off from Honolulu International Airport, as it makes the turn toward Tokyo-Narita as JO73. This photo was taken about two weeks prior to the retirement of Japan Airlines' B747 classic fleet, and JA812J also had the honor of performing the last flight (which was also JO73, HNL-NRT). Glad I was able to get on those JAL classics once again, for my final time. After February 2011, all of JAL’s B747-400s will also be retired. Sad times indeed. Seen below is the crystal clear ocean, the city of Honolulu, and Diamond Head; yet another great day in Hawaii Nei!
