Close not yet, it was in for paint at the time :) SUD is in the right direction (IE not a BCF - rather as it came off the production line)

B744 (Boeing 747-400) used for domestic sectors 744D

"Japanese airlines have bought the aircraft without winglets, however, for high intensity Japanese domestic routes. This has required some additional minor changes though, such as strengthening the aircraft to accommodate a large number of landings and takeoffs. The addition of the winglet provides the affect of having an even greater wingspan without outgrowing the standard airport slot."

WOW! ACE MAN. That looks very interesting. I would like to know all about it. Including what appears to be a tummy skid (not the tail skid) when it seems to have a perfectly good set of main wheels. Also note the slots/slats for slow landings.

Both the Sea prince and princess are in our Hangar at RAF St Athan.
The prince is having it's props overhauled and flies often, while the princess will be ready sometime next year.

There are some pics further down this thread

Ger, we were talking about the Pembroke, but you are a lucky man to have the Sea Prince and Princess close to you.
