Boeing 747-400(F), China Airlines

@ San Francisco International Airport, CA

June 2018

This 747 freighter, one of 18 747-400 in the China Airlines cargo fleet, is on final approach to SFO. The shorter upper-deck hump and lack of windows along the main deck identify this as a freighter version of the iconic 747 airliner. Boeing delivered 126 747-400F aircraft, with the last delivered in August 2008.  Recently China Airlines has been suffering from falling freight demands and has placed three of these Boeing aircraft in desert storage.  Nikon D500 w/Tamron 150-600mm.
