Make sure to cover news of the development of the new AF1, that is really the only major change coming around the corner.


The only major news as of now, is it is stored at KVCV I’m going to go see if they are doing anything to them today when I get there.

The one that is slowly disappearing… the 747-400. My photos.


Isnt there already a topic dedicated to this?

The video about the 747 complete overhaul was fantastic!

(I may be a bit biased, I’m a big Tom Wrigglesworth fan.)

It doesn’t make any difference. There hasn’t been activity on the other thread in two months.

The 747 is an absolute beauty! Hopefully she decides to stay around longer than planned!

B-LJE, the first B748 delivered to CX seen here arriving into Houston (IAH).

I am quite fond of this plane, which I admire is this plane can land on a rather short runway

for example like the video that I share above, definitely with a lightweight and not much aircraft load
