The Boeing 747 at Forty Photo Gallery

The mighty Boeing 747 celebrated a special birthday on 10th February 2009 - forty years since her first flight in 1969. Well known to most as the jumbo jet, over 1500 'forty-sevens have been ordered thus far. Indeed, she continues to sell well and in 2010 we look forward to her latest incarnations - the 747-8 Freighter and Intercontinental versions. Here are some of my 747 favourites.
