Boeing 747-SP

​EP-IRK


The Boeing 747-SP was introduced into the Iranian Airlines fleet in 1976 and was the launch customer for the type. Upon introduction the aircraft was used to operate the Tehran - New York route, and became the first airline in the middle east to operate non-stop services to the United States, which had previously been operated via London utilizing the Boeing 707 fleet of aircraft. Over the next two years Iranian Airlines took delivery of a further 3 more of the type and continued to operate the 747-SP for over 4 decades, becoming the last commercial airline in the world to operate the type.


In the later years of the aircrafts life it was primarily used on flights to and from India, and in 2016 the final aircraft operated its last flight, marking over 41 years of loyal service to the airline before being positioned to Iranian Airlines maintenance facility before finally all four examples of the aircraft where scrapped.


Livery worn from 1971-1991 with the Islamic Republic of Iran titles added to the fleet in 1979.

    ****ing beauty

    noice

    neat-o

    Love this!

    A stunner :wub:

    I can say that I like the design, the template is also very nice. When it comes to Iran, I would only expect a few pieces of "dirt" on the plane, but of course a personal preference :)

     

    Keep it up :) 

    This looks ****ing fab...

    This brand looks very mature and sophisticated, but the only thing that is bothering me is that the logo looks like a bird that is slamming its head on a wall. Maybe add some head room.
