BOEING 747-100 (N905NA)
Boeing 747-SCA N905NA takes off from Runway 04 with Enterprise at the beginning of the fourth Approach and Landing Test (ALT-4) at 8:00 A.M. on October 12, 1977. The American Airlines heritage of the 747-SCA was still apparent. Its Boeing construction number is 20107. It made its first flight on October 15, 1970 and was delivered to American Airlines as 747-123 N9668 two weeks later.
Now on display carrying the replica Shuttle "Independence" at Space Center Houston.
According to Wikipedia, this was ALT-15 (next to last ALT flight) and was "Free flight #4" (first of two without tailcone).
Thank you for a great photo and very informative comment.
Thank you great photo
ALT stands for Approach and Landing Test. Despite what Wikipedia claims, there were only five ALT flights. They were preceded by ten captive flights that were not referred to as ALT flights.
One of the coolest shots on Flightaware.!
AWESOME PHOTO! Classic
