El Al's last 747 flight paints its sihouette

Has been done before, still remains a nice touch.

Looks like they went down to 10,000 FT and less than 250 kts to get the performance to do this safely and with tight enough turns to make it look good.

That was supposed to be my post  ;)

Unfortunately, I had to go to work when they "painted" engine number 1 (they started with the upper section) however I was lucky when at some point I looked up (guess why) and there she was flying east before coming to final landing on 30. I succeeded to see her in her final seconds in the air.
For me it is a sad day.

Not a perfect flight...  Spot the broken system  ;)

Anyone able to deduce the waypoints they put into the FMS?

Unable to spot. Request help :-)


But I just noticed El Al has a TCAS mini compass rose on the ND around the airplane symbol, with 12 white dots (4 large, 8 small dots). Does any other airline use this option on the 744?

This is probably the real thing (I didn't enter it into the FMC yet to be 100% sure):

The bigger file can help us to know the speed of each segment (and more important, the speed at the turns which impact the radius, hence, the curve)

Enjoy it.

This is it (more or less, there are few errors here so I didn't save it):
