British Airways | LHR-LAX | Boeing 747-400

Hey IFC!
It’s always sad when an airline retires an aircraft they have used for multiple decades. I knew the 747’s retirement from passenger service was coming, but I didn’t think it was going to be so soon. Yet another thing the the pandemic has ended. I wonder if I will ever get to fly on one in my life time.

Lucky passengers, getting to fly on a 747
Here is the reason I have flaps down at cruise, so please no one comment about this.

Damn, really nice photos! Some of those angles, especially #2, are some of the best I’ve seen in a screenshot topic on the IFC. With a good editing software, these photos could go from really good to amazing. Keep it up!

@Oli_H here are my best three photos ever taken of the 747.


This last one almost looks real!
