View of the nose of a United Airlines B747 (in Old livery) at HNL in 1992. Photo uploaded as it shows cargo loading via the open forward Cargo Door, which was lost in-flight from United Airlines Boeing 747-122 N4713U on 24Feb1989, on a flight from HNL to AKL/SYD. Nine passengers (in Business Class) were tragically lost during the de-compression, but the aircraft returned safely to HNL with severe forward fuselage damage. Five weeks later I got on a Qantas B747 at SFO to fly to HNL and SYD. I was seated over that Door!
