“For more than half a century, tens of thousands of dedicated Boeing employees have designed and built this magnificent airplane that has truly changed the world.

We are proud that this plane will continue to fly across the globe for years to come,” said Kim Smith, Boeing Vice President and general manager, 747 and 767 Programs.

In Boeing’s history as a pioneer in the aerospace industry, the 747 has been significant.

The 747, the first twin-aisle aircraft ever built, went into production in 1967 and was produced for a total of 1,574 aircraft over the course of 54 years.

The 747-8 is the longest commercial aircraft currently in service, measuring 250 ft 2 in (76.2 m).

A 747-8 Freighter is the last aircraft. This model can transport 10,699 solid gold bars or around 19 million ping-pong or golf balls thanks to its revenue payload of 133.1 tonnes.
