B-18722

During a pressurization test at the Boeing factory during final assembly, the nose of this 747-400F blew off, requiring extensive repairs (seattlepi.nwsource.com/business/261731_boeing74704.html). Because of this, China Airlines has been hoping to sell it, which is why it's just painted white.
