        And as long as we are talking about the B-747:
        Summer of 2012 will see four visits of this aircraft type at Værnes/Trondheim, as Pullmantur plan to fly in their cruise passengers.
        Then it will be something to please both ship- and planespotters.

          That was interesting to watch. Fuselage stripped back to bare aluminium, but i noticed the engine covers did not receive the same treatment, they were just taken back to the base layer of paint, i wonder why that is?

            I think they are plastic (with some carbon fiber).

              That would make sense then. I guess they use some sort of paint stripper to remove the paint from the fuselage, certainly does a good job whatever it is.

                  The only way to fly perhaps?

                    I have only seen one private 747, not one of the new -8. It was in Las Vegas. The 747 landed and taxied to a large hangar where the doors were open and drove right inside. The doors mostly closed and a while later some limousines left. Apparently someone who really did not want to be seen. I can only imagine who would own a shiny new -8 as their private plane.

                      The only 747 I can think of is the Prsident's one.... (of the US).

                      Who in the world really needs their own private 747-800, and how can that can of expenditure be justified....!?

                        Re: [Boeing 747]

                        Found a funny video of a 747 which is trying to escape the axe at the breakers in Mojave desert 23. May 2012.
                        Well, what's really happening is that the engines are taken away and since a 747 has a far aft Center of Gravity in the first place, the 70 mph winds makes this effect by blowing over the elevators creating negative lift so that the nose rises.

                          Is that is why they sometimes upgrade people from the back to Business Class???

                            I've never flown in a 747, so how they do things around those businesses I have no idea.
                            But as a 747 is a plane with a very much aft CG even with the engines in place, it might be...., if you're upgraded without asking for it that is.

                                Dar friends, and creative souls:

                                Have you ever tried making your own B-747 livery?

                                Here is a great tool to do it.... I have tried it, but have some problems making it look great.

                                How about a CaptainsVoyage Airlines livery..... blue fuselage with our logo on the tale?

                                Let me see your attempts... please.
