Product description

In October 2022, the last Boeing 747 will roll off the production line at the gigantic factory in Everett, USA. After 52 years, production of the 'Jumbo Jet' will come to an end. To mark this significant occasion, DELIUS FINE BOOKS has published a unique monograph of this icon of civil aviation.

After years of research, Andreas Spaeth, one of the best-known aviation journalists in Europe, has compiled information, documents and images that have never been shown together before. Geoffrey Thomas, founder of AirlineRatings.net, provided color photographs from Boeing's factory archives and printed here for the first time. And 747 pilot and gifted photographer Christiaan van Heijst contributed a breathtaking photo series in which he captured his flying experiences as a "cowboy of the skies".

With its legendary upper deck, the 747 stands for the glamour of flying. At the same time, with more than 500 seats, it made air travel so much more affordable. With smooth flight characteristics, the sheer size and distinctive hump have inscribed themselves in the collective memory. Any passenger with some interest in airplanes remembers their first flight in the 747 'Jumbo Jet'.

This well designed and lavishly illustrated book tells the story of the "Queen of the Skies" which made history and changed aviation forever.

272 pages, more than 300 photos and illustrations, hardcover, dust jacket
luxurious book design with silver colour
