Such a remarkable plane for its time. It came into this world with a lot of uncertainty but has truly changed aviation. It has gone on for years as the queen of the skies and I hope in 50 years we will see her flying.

Think about this, Modern Economy class may never exist if Pan-Am and 747 didn't drive the ticker price down.
fantastic airplane.....a flying business card for Boeing for 50 plus years and still "a hit"
