I’ve always gushed about Russian and Japanese liveries and how they’re missing from IF. Now, I’m carrying on with that with Japan. This time, it’s a request for Japan Airlines’ 747-400 in the 2002-2011 colour scheme. Why do I want this? First of all, there aren’t many Japanese liveries in IF so I thought I’d add to it. Why add it if it’s retired? Well, why did IF add a DC-10 and MD-11? Plus, many 747 operators in IF have retired their fleet of 747s since it’s addition so I feel it is fitting. What surprises me about the 744 is that Japan Airlines was the world’s largest operator of the 747 family (the 400 being its most abundant) and the fact it isn’t in IF. You might say: Why not just fly the -200? Well, this livery is different and less dated. Now to the picture of this beauty!
