On February 9, 1969 for the first time the prototype of the world largest passenger plane made its way to the sky and opened a new category in air travel and transportation. Fifty years later the Boeing 747 is still in service with airlines around the world and is still under production.

Many words have been written about the 747, a lot more photos been taken.

Few of those photos from the 1970s until today’s Boeing 747 can be found at our FRA-Spotterforum photo gallery. Just follow this link..
