Photo Comment

When the British Orion Air folded in 1989, the Raleigh-based operators of this ex-Pan Am 747 acquired in 3.89 had the name all to themselves. But they too went under next year after operating Air Europe charters from the UK, during which time this 747 was dubbed 'The Flying Pig' due to serious unreliability causing massive delays. Seen here after the sub-lease; part-out at Marana from 1992 as N476EV of Evergreen
