    Kalitta 747 cargo nose loader

    Just spotted this one flying over the UK, it had called in to Brussels en-route possibly America.
    Did a bit of checking and it turns out this a nose loading 747-221F, is this rare or do other cargo airlines use nose loading 747's. Here's a link to Kalitta's website showing floor plan.

    Here's a nice photo of it landing at Schiphol.

    It's a production option for the 747F, so it's not uncommon.
