Boeing 747-200 - All Nippon Airways

All Nippon Airways is one of Japan's big two airlines (the other is JAL) with main hubs at Tokyo Narita and Haneda, Osaka Kansai, Osaka Itami, Nagoya Centrair, and Sapporo New Chitose Airports. The airline was the result of a merger between a helicoper company, Nippon Helicopter, and Far East Airlines in 1958. All Nippon Airways has developed Japan's biggest domestic network.

ANA is a big user of widebody airliners. It started operating widebodies in 1973 when it introduced the Lockheed L-1011 TriStar into its fleet. In 1978 ANA started flying the Boeing 747SR (Short Range), a version specially adapted for domestic use in Japan. The airline took delivery of 17 of these aircraft between 1978 and 1982. In 1986 ANA began to develop an international network, for which it acquired five 747-200B aircraft. From 1990 ANA took delivery of ten Boeing 747-400s and thirteen 747-400Ds (Domestic).

All 747s have left ANA's fleet now, the last aircraft in early 2014. They were mostly replaced by Boeing 777s. The photograph shows an ANA 747-200 approaching London Heathrow Airport.
