I’m pretty sure that’s a 747-300.

Yup it’s the -300 which seem to be pretty rare. You can tell because it kept the wings and engines of the -200 but has the body of the -400.

Nope it’s 100 percent a -200

Nope it’s a -200 for sure I know my Libyan airlines fleet ;)

I can confirm this is a -200. Libyan Arab Airlines operated three of them during their time with LAA, and I can’t find any records of LAA ever operating the -300.

As @KGJT-9149 said, the aircraft in the image has the typical features of the Boeing 747-300, which is the wings and engines of the -200 but the body of the -400.

However, since you say that Libyan Arab Airlines only operated the 747-200 (that’s what I found as well after searching it up), the only conclusion that I can come to is that this is an extra rare 747-200SUD, which is a -200 that had a retrofit upgrade carried out in the form of a streched-upper deck conversion. Very interesting stuff!
