Размещено

Though I’ve been flying since the 707 was the “workhorse “ of most fleets, I’ve never had the chance to be on a 747, and as the fleets are retired, possible I won’t get to.

But I can admire the beauty. There are more advanced aircraft, larger, more efficient birds, but - while the Concorde was the most futuristic plane I also never flew on, the 747 is, in my humble opinion, the most graceful and instantly recognized commercial jet of all time.

(I’ll leave a little weasel room for my similar infatuation with the Lockheed Constellation)

Wonderful picture and a H/T to Lufthansa for making it possible.

I sure hope Paul McCartney or Ringo don't see your reply...LOL...for some reason, don't think they would want to be associated with Volkswagen Beetles.

I was lucky enough to be invited to (the not yet open) DFW to view the showing of the 747 with two 707s parked beside it for comparison.

Great photo. I remember when they first flew. I've ridden on 47's and 97s but not on 747s. I wouldn't hesitate to build a home inside a retired one.

I flew on one from Honolulu to San Francisco in 1972 to be discharged from the Marine Corps. What a wonderful aircraft.
