N704SW was the last B-747 delivered to Seaboard. In addition to carrying Seaboard freight, it and other Seaboard 747s flew charters for VIASA (Venezolana Internacional de Aviación Sociedad Anónima) between New York, Miami, and Caracas, Venezuela in 1979 and 1980. This photo was taken at JFK on August 26, 1980.

Flights for VIASA continued after the merger with Flying Tigers and this aircraft was photographed (by an anonymous donor) in Toronto in 1981, still wearing Seaboard colors but carrying the Flying Tigers name and registered N814FT. Once‑a‑week flights between Toronto and Caracas were flown by VIASA crews.
