Description: the first B747-8F of Air Belgium, an ex Saudi Arabian airframe, arrived at Brussels on January 25 2022 as "M-ABOW" in the depicted hybrid livery as it was to be operated by the Chinese Hongyuan Group on flights between Brussels and China. It was stored for a while pending certification in the Belgian register, here depicted such with the Isle of Man registration with the Brussels air traffic control tower in the background and it was supposed to become "OO-ABI" but this was not the case.
