Think I’m busy tomorrow, but will try for a short flight. KSEA to KBFI is always a quick option. 😉

The 747 has a special place in my heart, in my honest opinion it is the most Iconic aircraft in history, it’s that one aircraft that everyone stares at for a good minute. This aircraft is getting old, sad to see it being retired by most airlines.

I will show up flying the queen, Mark, thank you for this nicely put together FNF. Great effort each and every week to bring us an official event for all to enjoy!

Well, this is a welcome surprise, as I unexpectedly had no knowledge of this event in Aviation history. I’m definitely bringing my trusty Jumbo! Happy Birthday/Anniversary/“Flyday” whatever you name it, 747! Your place in the skies and history has always been the throne of the Queen and also in every aviation enthusiast’s heart.

Kudos to you Mark! The effort you’ve done every week since the last couple years continues to impress. 👍🏻

You’re Welcome

Nice! It’s going to be at the airport I travel most often to in real life. It’s not my home airport, but right now I go there from either KSJC (my home airport) or KSFO every other month. Can’t wait to show up tomorrow! You guys just gave me an idea for a long haul flight I can do!

Could this come at a more coincidental time? I was just inside the City of Everett last Sunday. Good stuff.


Notice all the airlines not longer in service on the side.
