Boeing 747SP - China Airlines Postcard

The postcard shows China Airlines Boeing 747SP. The Boeing 747SP is a highly modified version of Boeing 747-100 offering 'special performance'. Known during development as the 'short body' 747SB, the shortened fuselage permitted longer range flights to be made. The 747SP was offered to customers in 1974, and the first airframe was delivered in 1976.
