Otherwise the Whire Top Livery that the PH-BUA used, B747-400's can have polished bellies I believe.

Not fond of the B787 it's a pretty boring design like most twin engine aircraft, the Boeing 747 is the best airframe design of all time the most reliable as well.

As one of the builders told me in person:

"747s were the best planes ever built. They were built to last."

And personally if it's not a B747 I won't ever choose to fly it, I prefer the reliable Power of 4 over the Insufficient power of 2.
Indeed. The Spirit of Joe Sutter flies on and on.
