I’m not crying you are

As she landed, the 747 era ends, #ThankYou747 ❤️

“Desi Evans worked for 45 years at Boeing, including as a production manager on the first 747. To this day, he can conjure amazement that the beloved beast flies…The size of it and - good grief, and the tonnage - you know, when you’re talking about between 3 to 400 tons of aircraft, it’s absolutely uncanny, isn’t it? And yet it just floats, doesn’t it? Absolutely floats.

It’ll still be flying folks! Has anyone seen the 747 and crown spelled in the sky?

Yes indeed.

No but I want to see it. Where could I possibly find it in the sky?? Maybe a constellation somewhere

The 747 was one of the most successful planes in Boeing history.
