Any insight to this? :unamused:


#2

Quick look at FAA registration site reports that “N” number belongs to a 1956 Beech G35…The Plot thickens.


#3

And a filed airspeed of 99 knots…slow even for a bonanza. If it IS a 747 he must be taking I80 to I5.


#4

I wonder if it’s a model 747-228B that was misidentified, of which there is only one in the FAA registry: N728SA


#5

possible, a couple of other reg sites say it is ex-Air France, re-registered and is (was) to be broken up.
I’m still waiting for somebody in Stockton to report they saw it on I 5.


#6

In a retro Northwest livery…
