The image for this year end will undoubtedly be that of the Boeing 747!

The majestic and mythical Jumbo Jet revolutionised the world of global air transport and thrilled all aviation enthusiasts…

On 6 December 2022, a chapter in aeronautics closed: Boeing announced the release from the Everett assembly plants of the very last Boeing 747. 🎤 “A 747-8 Cargo aircraft will be delivered to the US airline Atlas Air Worldwide in early 2023. With a length of 76.3 metres, the 747-8 is the world’s longest commercial aircraft. It will be dethroned by the 777-9, which is scheduled to enter service in 2025” © Jean-Marc Fron, Managing Director Boeing France.

To mark this major event, we have chosen to share the photo of a Cargolux Airlines Boeing 747-800 cargo plane landing in Toulouse, a very nice shot taken by Clément Alloing, photographer and AVgeek. Thanks Clément for this wonderful photo! 🙏
