United adds "souvenirs" of old B 747 Flights Share your B 747 memories in the comment section, please
One of the aviation icons defining American flight advances, the B-747 is being retired by one of its earliest customers. One of the tenets of Kelly Johnson, Lockheed’s Hall of Fame aircraft designer (Electra, P-38 Lightning, Constellation, F-104,C-130 Hercules, U-2 and SR-71Blackbird), is that all great planes and beautiful and the Boeing four engine, twin aisle, two level conqueror of the skies epitomizes that truism.
These birds were used by United and Continental for long haul, high density markets. Signature service was the hallmark of Hawaiian, International and Transcontinental flights.
Here are some of the pictures which United has provide—ENJOY:

This aircraft was inspiring just to board. Once in your seat, the experience, not always, was exceptional. Long flights allowed the flight attendants to provide one or more flights. Many, many passengers took this plane headed to exotic destinations. The spacious interior, the expectations about the visit and just the plane’s profile made many of these flights so memorable.
Please share any memories you have from flights on this plane in the COMMENT SECTION!!!
