At the start of the longest non-stop flight to ever operate out of Huntsville, and one of the longest flights for any 747: over 17 hours & 7200nm direct to Hong Kong.
First landing of ship #499 since it was down for a maintenance check. Compare with photo # 324000, shot at the same angle, and notice the tail has been repainted.
