Model:Boeing 747 series

Information:

Since the 1st prototype flew in 1969, over 1,100 Boeing 747, 'Jumbo Jets', have been produced.

Announced in 1985 & 1st flown in 1988, the 747-400, can fly 416 passengers about 8,380 miles. The 747-400 has a two-pilot digital flight deck and a new interior and is powered by stronger, more efficient engines. With its huge capacity, extended range and improved fuel efficiency, the 747-400 offers the lowest operating costs per seat of any commercial jetliner. In addition to the passenger version, the 747-400 is offered as a combi -- carrying passengers forward and cargo aft on the main deck -- as well as a domestic, high-capacity version.

Improved avionics have allowed flight crew to be reduced to just 2 pilots.
