Ok, so what is so strange about this aircraft? Yes, it is missing a winglet!
This 747-400 is missing something!... Apparently allowed in the Minimum Equipment List and it flies just fine with just one (or none).
VARIG was a member of the 747-400 club for only a couple of years. This particular machine went on to serve with Garuda Indonesia.
In the evening light.
My first encounter with a Garuda Indo plane. Not sure about the livery, a bit plain to me! Nice to get some sun that weekend tho! (10D/100-400LIS)
A rare visitor to Adelaide was this Garuda 744. It was a pleasant surprise as we normally only get A330's
The Garuda boys smoking those tyres again. The force the rubber must take when the aircraft meets the ground.
GA714 being operated by a 744, the first of many for the next few Sundays.
With a broken leg, thanks to my brother who taken this rare visit to Melbourne from a Garuda 747-400.
