Nothing Like A 747!

Right you are skycos! I was just covering the basics!  wink

The 747-400 series without winglets you mentioned is known as the 747-400D...it does not have winglets and was designed for increased capacity on short range routes.

As for -100 and -200 series with stretched upper decks...indeed!

Check out these pics...

#1 is Boeing 747-146B/SR/SUD HS-UTM (cn 23637/655) of One-Two-Go (Orient Thai Airlines). She is a -100 series B747 with the stretched upper deck.

#2 is Boeing 747-446D JA8090 (cn 26347/907) of JAL, -400 series...no winglets.

There are a vast amount of 747 variations. Some bigger...some smaller...let's not forget the baby of them all...the Boeing 747SP, or Special Performance:

"The idea for the 747SP came from a joint request between Pan American World Airways and Iran Air who were looking for a high capacity airliner with enough range to cover Pan Am's New York–Middle Eastern routes and Iran Air's planned Tehran-New York route. The Tehran-New York route when launched was the longest non-stop commercial flight in the world."

From:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_747

emckirdy, there is way to much info to put into posts here...check out the Wiki page above, the section called "Variants" has a ton of info on all the different types, from the -100 series all the way up to the -8 series. Also the Boeing page I linked to below is good.

Below is Boeing 747SP-21 N536PA (cn 21441/306) of Pan Am.

Anyone remember the webcam at KBOS back in the day that let users control the camera?

Does anyone know of a webcam for any other large airport such as ORD?

Joey -- those pages were both very interesting reads! Especially the Boeing page. I'm certainly still not an expert like many here, but I'm definitely less ignorant now.

Thanks again!

Eric -- and now, back to the 172 POH

Is this true that this camera shows runway 25-right?
The taxiway at the bottom portion of the cam would be taxiway bravo?

Does anyone know how much of a delay there is between this cam, the lax audio feed and the actual time?

Yeah, 25R and Bravo taxiway turning onto 25R. The camera doesn't seem to have a delay at all, besides the fact that its a still picture that refreshes every 8 seconds. I've found LAX Tower to have a 5-8 second delay but that's just me.

A few more shots, this time some rare aircraft I managed to capture.


THA795, what's special is that this flight usually takes off at around 10PM AT NIGHT; you can clearly see its 3 PM thanks to the time thing.


Saudi 772, I don't know much about this.



HB-IEE of PrivatAir, IIRC it was headed to HNL.



Not rare but its cool to see two airlines having the same color livery.
