Great shot, thank you very much sharing my mighty Gentle Giant. And also thanks to Gary Schenauer for his perfect comment, my English is not good enough to describe how wonderful this picture is.

Great to see this amazing aircraft still in regular use. We don't see many in my part of the world now. Brings back wonderful memories of regular flights with Royal Norwegian Airforce in late 60's to Bardufoss, Bodo, Tromso and Gardermoen (Oslo)

Isn't a 360? The d'or is open ,probable used for parachute dropping...

Interesting design approach replacing turboprops with turbofans. Shame it never really "took off" so to speak. Couldn't really compete with the turboprops on a "pax cost per mile" basis in this size class I guess.

Aaah those Russians! They certainly know how to build undercarriages!

I would be less surprised if they were extinguishing a fire than if they were deicing properly.

Perhaps this can be nicknamed "The Flying Salmon" ? It will be quite interesting to come across this midair.

Your newest posts are, once again, five star shots, Uwe. All your pics are always *****. And about the new observation deck .... I know you are feeling frustrated that the meshwire has ruined the deck as a photo-taking spot. Back when I was a teen (which was a very, very, VERY long time ago), every airport had one ... or more ... observation deck(s). At RNO, there even used to be a picnic area right at the 34L end of runway 34L-16R. In fact, the picnic tables are STILL THERE, but no one is ever going to be having a family picnic there again ... it is all fenced off. The times have changed and, sadly, observation decks at many airports are long gone now. So if EDDF has a new one, then at least young children can be on it to hear and see the aircraft. I wish kids here could do that. Thank you for these super photos, Uwe. (Wave)

Just a couple days ago, I commented to another FA member that there are certain photographers who certainly know that their pics are ultra-outstanding so I never post comments to them to tell them something they already know. You are one of those photogs, John. When it comes to pics posted by you and several other contributors (I could list them but they know who they are), the FA "star" rating system is unbelievably inadequate. Pics from several US contributors like yourself and from some overseas contributors like Uwe are automatically worth the max number of stars and almost all of them are worth at least twice the max. So I just instantly give every new pic a "5" and then I kick back and enjoy the photo. But I do want to make a one-time observation here: there will never be another aircraft that can ever take the title of "Queen Of The Skies" away from the B747. And if anyone ever publishes a "Greatest Photos of The Queen Of The Skies" book (or CD or DVD), some of your 747 photos da-n sure deserve to be included in it. And I'd da-n sure buy a copy!! As always, stunning shots, John.

I'm sure they do...!

Thanx, John. I very much appreciate the comment / compli. I have to be honest and admit that I'm envious of you and Darryl over there at Logan. Alaska doesn't fly any of its Boeing fleet into Reno, so I'll never get the awesome captures you two get of the Alaska special paints. I do go over the mountains to get pics at SMF (Sacramento) if the WX is good, but because of all the snow this winter I haven't been able to go when the schemes are there, so I have to rely on you two to provide the pics so I can view them. lol And the next time my wife and I fly back there (she's from Worcester), I'm going to book us thru KBOS (we usually fly into TF Green) because I'd truly love to try for a couple pics like you guys always get with the fabulous Boston skyline or the Tobin Bridge or etc. in the background. The shots you guys post are always captures that could be used by airlines in their mags or by the Boston Chamber of Commerce in their brochures, etc. Please keep 'em coming. (Wave)

Roy >> Hi and Thank You.
Isaac >> Those are white rocks. It stands for Reno.
There are five such letters in the Reno area: the "R" seen here; an "S" for the City of Sparks which is adjacent to Reno (see my photo of C-FYJG; it is in the background); and also an "N" (just barely out of this picture off the right side ... it can be seen in various other pics) which stands for the University of Nevada - Reno (UNR). The "N" has actually been there on Peavine Mountain for around 100 years. It gets "refreshed" every year by UNR students.
South of Reno, there is a "D" for Damonte Ranch and a "G" for Galena (visible in the background of my picture of helicopter N109LN). Both of those areas are residential and the letters were constructed by the high school students in those areas.
Putting large white letters on the sides of mountains in pretty common in Nevada. They can be seen all around the state.

I had the good fortune to work for MD from 1990-1994.
So somewhere on each jet of the first 100 off the line you could find my DNA. (line numbers 450-451)
Love that plane
