Now missing quite a few bits there is no doubt that this beautiful plane's flying career is over.
Departing off runway 07R on a nice morning. Photo taken from the comfort of my own living room!
One of the nicer schemes in Japan.

Departing off runway 27R into the sunset.
A year ago I took a photo of this 747 just after it had arrived into Victorville. Now a year later it stands in the same spot but missing many parts. The beginning of the end.
Climbing away slowly and lower than most of the longhaul departures of the day!
A one-time frequent visitor to Hong Kong now joining lots of other 747-400s stored and awaiting scrap in the high desert.
