Boeing 747-400

Boeing 747-400

by Robert F Dorr




The Boeing 747-400 is the transformed version of the airliner that changed the world. In many ways, it is a new aircraft rather than a development of the wide body "jumbo jet" that brought air travel to the everyday citizen. With an outer shell that dates to the mid-1980s and an interior that reflects a digital revolution and a new century, the 747-400 is a complex and smoothly functioning thing of beauty. Many regard the 747-400 as the most majestic flying machine to grace the skies.
