As you may have heard, the last 747 has rolled off the production line. The 747 has been a legendary aircraft ever since it started. I would like to invite all you IFC members to a memorial flight for the 747.
How this will work?
We will spawn at Everette Airport 15-10 minutes before event time. When the event starts, we pushback and then taxi to the runway (Runway and Ramp info will be posted soon). For this memorial, we would like pilots to fly the 50th EAA livery on the 747-200, either one of the Boeing liveries on the 747-8 and a Generic 747-400. We will be flying over Everett in a low pass formation, over Downtown Seattle, KBFI, KSEA and KRNT before returning to Everett. Please follow my FPL to keep formations possible. Simply copy it before departure. A chat will be made for communications
As we want to memorialize the 747, here is my speech about it.
“The 747 has been legendary since it started. The first jet engine double decker aircraft. It has gone through 5 types along with many more. Air Force 1 utilizes a modified 747. Many presidential aircraft utilize the 747. But now, we will not see any new 747s any more. Although it may be sad to see less of them soar through the skies now, they will still soar in our hearts once the last one is retired (In next 10-15 years). May the joy of producing the legendary aircraft live on.”
This event will be on training server to allow some of my friends to join.
Thank you for helping me memorialize the beautiful jet.
