Weird Plane Spotted at LAX

Weird Plane Spotted at LAX

  1. Anonymous

    HI,

    I saw a plane yesterday that confused the heck out of me. I didn’t get to take a picture but imagine a 747 with only one engine per wing, completely white besides a blue belly and no markings. It was parked away from the terminals, easily visible when you get off the 105 towards the airport.

    I was wondering how I would be able to identify it, if I had a theory as to when it landed. Like around 2:30 pm to 3:00 pm yesterday (3/12/17).

    Thanks!

    Parked away from the terminals, like over by where the cargo companies operate?

    I can’t think of any commercial liveries that are white with a blue belly (other than the old United livery), so likely a cargo plane.

    Are you sure it had an upper deck, or a partial upper deck? I don’t know of any still-operating two-deck aircraft with only two engines, but I am not the geekiest of avgeeks.

    Otherwise, maybe a cargo 747 with engines off for maintenance?

    Only thing flying that looks like it should be 2 decks and have 2 engines is the Airbus Beluga.

    But the color is wrong and not sure what one would be doing at LAX, even if they do get around from time to time.
