Korean Air Lines was started by the South Korean government in 1962. In 1969 the airline became privately owned when it was acquired by the Hanjin Transport Group. The airline changed its name in 1984 to Korean Air.

 

Korean Air operated two 747SPs in their fleet from 1981 until 1998. This model represents the airline's first 747SP, ship HL7456, in its original delivery colors. It was delivered to the airline on January 22, 1981, and in November 1998 it was retired from the fleet along with the other 747SP.

 

This ship flew the New York - Seoul route nonstop. When this route was covered by a 747-200 a refueling stop in Anchorage was needed.
