Remarks: As my ride back to Singapore gets serviced, a Polar Air Cargo 747-8F in the hybrid DHL livery arrives in the background from Cincinnati via Anchorage. [Canon EOS 40D + Sigma 17-70mm f/2.8-4.5 DC IF Macro]
Remarks: The National Airlines scheme is easily one of the best in the industry today and the 747s look amazing in it. Sadly on 04/29/2013 this aircraft crashed on takeoff from Bagram, Afghanistan with the loss of everyone onboard. Originally delivered to Air France as a -428 F-GISE in ‘93. It started flying with National in 2010 operated by Air Atlanta as TF-NAD and was then re-registered as N949CA in 2011. They operated a series of charters to Hong Kong in the past.
