My one and only flight on a 747 was from Vancouver to Honolulu! It will be always be one of Boeing’s best legends!

The 747 will forever be one of my all time favourite aircraft. I still look up with awe when they fly over daily, mostly cargo these days. (thanks for Flightradar24, a global app that will tell you all aircraft details flying over if they are on ATC)

Read this this morning. 747's still require a floppy disc for software updates!
