Unpopular plane Appreciation Post

I decided to take the beautiful Iran Air 747-200 from Tehran IKA to Doha.

The 742 is such an iconic airplane so it’s a real shame that no one flies it. I can’t say I blame them since the IF model doesn’t have wing flex (my biggest pet peeve ever) and the plane can be tricky and sluggish to fly.

Nonetheless, I still had a nice time :)




I hope this encourages someone to choose a neglected plane for their next flight :)

I agree and I’ve gone back to fly it several times. Nice photos! Do you know the location of the last one? Also the mountains of Iran are quite spectacular.

I fly the -200 all the time… If you like this aircraft, you’ll be in a treat when a virtual airline I’m a part of gets approved…
