    I should photoshop up a 6 engine version and post it on Airliners.net, just to get the people there upset. (of course, getting them upset is like shooting fish in a barrel, so it's probably not worth the effort).

    I have submitted some really nice pictures there, only to have them rejected. They're tack sharp, balanced, centered, etc etc. Even after their suggestions for corrections, they keep find other things. I give up. I can't crack the code to that cult.

    Thanks for taking the time to research this. We are big Top Gear fans in our household, the Vietnam episode is our favourite. I had always wondered why the plane was parked there and now I know.

    +1. Great job for posting the story of the 747. The Vietnam episode was hilarious especially the part that Jeremy failed his motorcycle test. :)
