The Boeing 747 Family – From the 747SP to the 747-8

The Boeing 747 is a wide-body commercial airliner and cargo transport aircraft, often referred to by its original nickname, Jumbo Jet, or Queen of the Skies. It is among the world’s most recognizable aircraft and was the first wide-body ever produced. Manufactured by Boeing’s Commercial Airplane unit in the United States, the original version of the 747 was two and a half times the size of the Boeing 707, one of the common large commercial aircraft of the 1960s. First flown commercially in 1970, the 747 held the passenger capacity record for 37 years.

    Adding a sub-title to match the aircraft would help the ones who don't know much about aircraft, or the airline.

    At 5:35 you can see , that all four engines make different volume of smoke… Why ? They are not correctly adjusted ? Or it is typically ?

    I prefer the A320 series over the B737 but I think the 747 is nicer than the A380 , there's something majestic about her.

    Lucky enough to have flown on 747-100, 200, SP and 400. Without a doubt the most beautiful aircraft to ever fly. Sadly, even with the 800, her days are numbered.
