When I was listening to the traffic the controller had a Pan Pan Pan with
KML 691. It's supposed to be a H/B744/W

Is that a cargo conversion 747?

thx

Great shot, does he have an larger res image of that shot?

I was not sure why they called it a 744 and not a 747.

Thx for the info.

747-400. Its the 400 series
Like a 737-800 would be called 738. The last seven is a given and replaced
by the series.

I have worked in many airports in Africa and the EU and they always ask how
many souls are on board, (if not known, in case of emergency).
I have just returned from Ethiopia, (they have a brand new airport in case
you didn't know), and their practice is to always ask, regardless of the
flight info so that it is on record.

Peter, while the picture is of a 747 it's appears not to be the one your
friend has a picture of. The picture from Airliners.net is a picture of a
747 used in KLM's Asia fleet. The picture that your friend has, ASIA is not
on the plane at all.
