Just landed. What aircraft is this? Someone help me.

Just landed in EGSS, and I saw this 747 and was wondering who it was owned by and what the registration was?

Can someone help me and I’m sorry for the photo quality. The aircraft was going pretty fast ;)


Looks like a 747-SP… I’ll do some looking.


definitely a 747SP. specifically that is the SOFIA (Stratospheric Observatory for Infrared Astronomy)

Sure is, especially when I didn’t look at arrivals in advance. I just landed was recording a video and then that appeared
