747 50th Anniversary Flight @ KSEA - 061400ZOCT18

Happy 50th Anniversary

50 years ago the revolutionary 747 made its debut in Seattle at Boeing’s Factory. The 747 at the time almost caused Boeing to go bankrupt, but today the 747 is remarked as a revolutionary aircraft that changed the way we travel. Soon the Queen of the Skies will be retiring, leaving a trail of revolutionary widebodies in its wake such as the 777, DC-10, and the A330.

Join me on my flight out of Seattle to the launch customer’s (Pan Am) main hub, John F. Kennedy airport. I know this is very late to create an event, but I feel it will still be worth it.

Hey, cool concept for your come back event, but as mentioned, please use the correct format as posted by @Luke_Sta

Done, thanks for reminding me, been a long time since my last event.

I would also say that you should put events at least 2 weeks in advance to give people a chance sign up. Thank you.

Can you change it to Sunday the 7th? I’m doing demos in the Miramar air show Saturday and I would like to try to attend this.

Aren’t all the 747s built at Everett,not Sea-Tac? Plus the original one is on display at the Museum of Flight next to Boeing Field.
