Eye for detail? These engines and cowlings are pretty rare on a 747: JT9D-70A

On 12/11/1994, Ramzi Yousef (alias Armaldo Forlani) planted a bomb on the right-hand side of this plane, right behind the R2 door on the Manila-Cebu leg. On its way from Cebu to Tokyo, the bomb exploded 2 hours after takeoff. The explosion only killed Haruki Ikegami and injuring 10 others (given that 26K was 2 rows ahead of the center fuel tank), though the pilots were able to overcome such damage and land at Naha. Subsequent investigations and manhunt ultimately foiled what's known as the Bojinka plot.
