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."

Nope but close-ish (ie - not a -400) , clue is before winglets were generally used

OK time is up...

It is a -100 Series


"...JAL operated the −100BSR SUD with 563 seats on domestic routes until their retirement in the third quarter of 2006. While only two −100BSR SUDs were produced, in theory, standard −100Bs can be modified to the SUD certification.[110] Overall, 29 747SRs were built,[2] including seven −100SR, 20 −100BSR, and two −100BSR SUD models."

I am much puzzled (which happens often :? ) It looks like one power lever but two sets of engine instruments. Could this be so? I think not.

BTW Couldn't you afford an iPhone? :wink: :lol:

Ah. Looks like one prop blade straight ahead, and seemingly a mixture control, but no pitch. You are giving me a hard time, and I have plenty of other stuff I should be getting on with.

Quite correct!!! How did you get it? I test flew it in Hunx some years ago, and found it to be a delightful aircraft, although perhaps a little pricey. We were looking at opening an SA agency at the time. http://www.extraaircraft.com/business/index.php
