Hi to you all,

Dear Ivan confirm it's an Atlas Air B747, cos nowadays there's an increasing AMC (US army) flights between USA and Middle East (maybe KWI or DXB) operating by Atlas Air Freighters.
Between July 2002 & 0ctober 2004 such flights using Atlas Air Freighters were doing Stopover (for fuelling) at LGG, but now maybe at SNN or PIK probably.

Can somebody confirm pls

COOL PICS!!! Thank you for sharing! I am not sure that the 1st one is a 777, the engines aren't that big to be a 777...

Could it be a First Choice Airways B767?

Anyone able to identify this one?

Went overhead this evening going east. Probably from heathrow... Thai Airlines new paint? But then the engines wouldn't be purple ( or is it blue)

edit: perhaps Atlas air ( see post by Pawel on top of this page.. the colours match, as do the engines...)

Cheers

Hi guys,

I'm almost sure that's an Atlas Air 747, I could be wrong as a human beeing.

Let's have a look to this link in order to compare
