Boeing 747-4H6

Image Description

When the A380 fleet of Malaysia Airlines were scheduled for maintenance, a B747-400 was identified as a standby aircraft and duly painted in this retro livery.
As it turned out, it too was due for a heavy maintenance visit and consequently never operated a single commercial flight in this livery. It flew to Jakarta where the livery was removed.
