Interesting narration by pilot but at 9:28 planes are diverted around a "cloud".

Any idea who he flies for? I'm guessing that's a 747-200/400 based on the steam gauges and what I'd assume is a flight engineer in the third seat. I know Kalitta Air just retired the last of their 747-200's so my guess would be a 747-400. I wasn't aware that the 400 didn't have a glass cockpit and didn't have GPS integration for the inertial navigation units. Heck even my old P-3 had GPS INU's!

747-400 has GPS, glass cockpit and NO FE.

This is a -100 or -200.

Thanks Astro! I'm not all that familiar with the 747 series so I wasn't sure which series had what. Wasn't it a 707 or 747 that was shot down kear the Kamchatka peninsula during the Cold War? If I remember correctly the shoot down of that aircraft prompted the civil use of GPS.

I thought I heard the pilot use ANA as the callsign, which is All Nippon Airways, probably All Nippon Cargo. The date is Feb 2012, so they were possibly still flying -200's.

You may be thinking of Korean Airlines flight 007. It took off from here in Anchorage, and it was a 747.

FWIW, I was the engineer at the former Naval Air Development Center in Warminster, PA, that had Litton develop that integration.

Someone mentioned in the YouTube thread it was a 200. Built in 1988 and stored since Sept 2012.
