Their 1st 748F is officially listed on my copies of Boeing Morning Reports and ACT.

Also LN1495 747-8i for Qatar Amiri Flight is in the 45-01 paint hangar. Unsure if it's just a touch-up to an all white BBJ or actual paint job to match their other 747-8i.

They are both showing. Ln 1437 is their 1st (reg sequence wise) and ln 1535 is their 2nd. They are only getting 2 frames.

@ Peter, surprised to see that GE test frame retired so soon as it was only repainted in that new livery 2 years ago! Seems like a waste of money but maybe they've discovered something terminal with the frame which is not economical to fix hence the decision to retire it.

I hope they don't chop her up.
That aircraft has a lot of the Pan Am interiors. It is worthy of preservation.
