Lufthansa Retro Jet

Lufthansa have painted up one of their 747-8I jets in a livery that is based on their old color scheme.  Until recently, the Seattle route was being flown with a 747-400 so I didn’t anticipate the chance to see it.  Then, in the aftermath of the Air Berlin bankruptcy, Lufthansa deployed some 747s on domestic services to bolster capacity.  This meant some 747-400s were pulled from routes and the 747-8I was subbed on to Seattle.  I was down there on a crummy day to get the IL-76 and the special jet was due in.  I figured I couldn’t miss it, even if the conditions weren’t great.  The light was not great as it came down the approach but the shot from behind as it got to the threshold was a bit better.
