I don't think that's a 747. I don't see a visible (By shadow, and shadowing) hump characteristic of the 747. I believe this is a Airbus A340.

Can be one of these: B747-100, B747-100B, B747-200, B747-200F.

There is one characteristic which identify it as a Boeing. The cockpit windows are more away from the nose and the nose itself looks bigger then the one from the Airbus.

The length is more like a Boeing then an Airbus and the wingspan is exactly the same.
Boeing - Airbus A340-500
Wingspan: 59,64m - 63,45
Length: 70,66 - 67,9

The other Airbus's are to short or to long.

I would believe that is indeed a 747 ;)

You may be right, but it doesn't look like it has a hump at all. It doesn't look 747ish.
Any other 747 picture you can immediatly identify it as one, this one is problematic.
