[Departed] 30DEC2022 | 747 Retirement Flyout | KSEA

image

Welcome to Seattle!

Seattle is home to the most successful aircraft manufacturer of all time. Boeing. Boeing has made many iconic planes over the decades but the most iconic and most beautiful of them all is clearly the 747 family. Sadly, on the 6th of December of 2022, the last 747 to ever be built was rolled off the line and shipped to Atlas Air. It’s a shame to see this beauty end production after so many years and I think we should honor it.

I know this event was published kind of short notice but I hope we can get enough 747 fanboys (like myself) and cultured avgeeks alike to get together and do a proper 747 send off.

This event will contain all the most famous 747 models and liveries as well as large operators. And for the non 747 fanboys (if those exist), I will add a few regular flights to the event as well.

I was originally going to host the event at Boeing Field (KBFI) however they do not have many stands that can hold the 747. So I moved to Sea-Tac (KSEA) since its still in Seattle but has a few more 747-sized gates. If the event is popular enough, I might move airports again to an even larger airport if necessary.
