The Boeing 747 has earned its reputation as a revolutionary aircraft.
Known as the “Queen of the Skies,” the 747 built up a considerable
fanbase, loved by customers and crew.
A masterful feat of engineering, the 747 balanced size, power and
efficiency. It was the first plane to introduce “big fan” engines, but
it will always be best known for its unique upper deck, which gives its
silhouette that iconic and instantly recognizable hump.
With its wide body design and double aisles, the 747 also boasted another
allimportant perk: It felt infinitely roomier than its peers. Click below to view the 747 as we pay homage to our most recognizable aircraft as it flies
into the sunset after 47 years of service.
