It’s a special type of aeroplane that not only captures the imagination of the passengers but is also loved and appreciated by the pilots and cabin crew, and the 747 is one such aircraft.
British Airways 747 Retirement Flights. Farewell to the BA Jumbo Jets
Some aircraft are in a class of their own and the Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet is one of them.
There are more fuel efficient and ergonomically designed modern aircraft now but I doubt many of them will feature as much in films and documentaries in years to come.
The Jumbo, like Concorde, has a life and personality all of its own.
If ever there was an aircraft that looked like it could come alive and talk then this is one.
Some of the most enjoyable transatlantic flights I’ve experienced were up in the bubble of a 747.
Sadly, all good things come to an end and the 747’s days are getting shorter.
In July British Airways announced that all 31 of its remaining 747s had flown their last commercial services as a result of the devastating impact the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the airline and the aviation sector, which is not predicted to recover to 2019 levels until at least 2024.
