The first Boeing 747



On this day in history, the first 747 was rolled-out of the factory doors in Everett, WA. Huge and distinctive, the aircraft was an engineering marvel and a thing of beauty, and it quickly became one of Boeing's greatest success stories as a passenger jet and as a freighter. The aircraft soon earned the moniker the "Queen of the Skies."

The modern successors of "The City of Everett", the all new 747-8i and 747-8F, are now in test and will be delivered to customers in 2011. Larger, more powerful, more comfortable and more efficient, the 747-8 family will be game-changers, just like their predecessors.

Happy birthday, 747!
