Over 20 years ago I watched a fascinating video on the Discovery Channel program Wings. I recorded the show on to VHS tape, but the tape lost its quality over the years. This program was re-christened as the “Great Planes” series.
Thanks to Jon at Flightblogger, I re-discovered my favourite video. On this the 40th anniversary of its first flight, I cannot offer a better tribute to the Boeing 747, the “Queen of the skies”. The audio may be poor, but the sheer audacity, grit and achievements, of the folks at Boeing come out in this video. I hope you enjoy it, as much as I do.
