  1. Took a flight of Swissair 747-300 from Hong Kong to Seoul (Gimpo Airport) back in 1994 Feb. The upper deck was configured with economy class seats. Quite a new experience for me!

  2. These old girls are undeniably the greatest aircraft of all time and deserve the title of the Queen of the skies. I also think the A380 and A350 from airbus and Boeing's 777 and 787 are awesome and in time, will also have a place in the same category as the Queen. I still get those butterflies in my stomach when I see a B747 just as I can remember feeling when I was a 4-5 yo boy. Is there anyone out there who has flown on the B747 who does not have a place for her in their hearts?

  3. Awesome video. I was wondering if you guys knew how to get access to the airport tarmac to film, I'm filming a short documentary and I was wanting to get closeups of aircraft at the gates, I can't with the way DFW airport is situated from the observation deck.

  4. Huge thanks for sharing this epic video. A little history about this Boeing 747. According to Airfleets.Net, this Boeing 747 started flying with Swissair in 1983, until 2000.
