Remarks: JALways 743 making a runway 25L departure back to Tokyo on a fine July day. They were a subsidiary of JAL & their other 747s had these colourful “Reso’cha” schemes too.
I miss these colourful classics and 747 classics in general as their numbers dwindle sharply every year.
Remarks: (Del 2/88) thundering away from Rwy 34L operating as JL778 to Kansai. This aircraft was eventually painted in the current JAL livery prior to being disposed of in October 2008 to Orient Thai Airways as HS-UTS.
Remarks: I was very glad to see this great aircraft at SYD during my trip. After visiting Japan about 2 months prior i was dissapointed i did not see one of the "Resocha" scheme aircraft. Here she is though in all her flowery glory! (1dmkii/120-300F2.8EX)
