BOEING 747 watches another BOEING 747 LAND + B747 blowing up some snow during DEPARTURE (4K)

- Boeing 747` s everywhere! A ASL B747 waiting at the holding point of runway 04L while another ASL Boeing 747 is on short final of runway 04. After the B747 lined up another 747 crossed the runway from the left. Atlas Air isn` t a frequent visitor at Liege. They operated a cargo charter flight from Almaty via Liege to Chicago. Liege is always a fantastic place if you are interested in heavy cargo planes. I was able to film 14 B747 Movements within six hours that day and most of them are visible in this video.
Just an update about the green Boeing 747 OO-ACF. Three days ago it was ferried to Shannon in Ireland where it will be painted, most likely in an all white paint scheme. So this was definitly the last time you saw the former Jade Cargo B747 in my videos.

The shown B747`s are Boeing 747-400`s. The Boeing 747-400 is a wide-body airliner produced by Boeing Commercial Airplanes, an advanced variant of the initial Boeing 747. The "Advanced Series 300" was announced at the September 1984 Farnborough Airshow, targeting a 10% cost reduction with more efficient engines and 1,000 nmi (1,850 km) more range. Northwest Airlines (NWA) became the first customer with an order for 10 aircraft on October 22, 1985. The first 747-400 was rolled out on January 26, 1988, and made its maiden flight on April 29, 1988. Type certification was received on January 9, 1989, and it entered service with NWA on February 9, 1989.
It retains the 747 airframe, including the 747-300 stretched upper deck, with 6 ft (1.8 m) winglets. The 747-400 offers a choice of improved turbofans: the Pratt & Whitney PW4000, General Electric CF6-80C2 or Rolls-Royce RB211-524G/H. Its two-crew glass cockpit dispenses with the need for a flight engineer. It typically accommodates 416 passengers in a three-class layout over a 7,285 nmi (13,490) km range with its 875,000 lb (397 t) MTOW.
The first -400M combi was rolled out in June 1989. The -400D Domestic for the Japanese market, without winglets, entered service on October 22, 1991. The -400F cargo variant, without the stretched upper deck, was first delivered in May 1993. With an increased MTOW of 910,000 lb (410 t), the extended range version entered service in October 2002 as the -400ERF freighter and the -400ER passenger version the following month. The Dreamlifter is an outsize cargo conversion designed to move Dreamliner components. Some have been adapted as transports of heads of state or for specific uses like the YAL-1 laser testbed or the Cosmic Girl air launcher.
