The Boeing 747 is the best airplane ever built. It’s the world’s most recognizable plane, and it has enough cargo capacity to swallow a 737 whole.
Airliners.net is a database of photos of planes taken by people around the world.
It also has forums where you can talk about planes with other people who like planes as much as you do.
This blog gives you bite-sized information about airliners.net, including interesting links, photos and any news relating to the site.
One of the most fascinating aspects of the aviation industry is the design of airplanes. The shapes and sizes of airplanes are constantly changing. It’s amazing to see how much work goes into designing an airplane. The new Boeing 747 is a great example of this.
The new Boeing 747 has been in development for a long time. It has been developed with the help of NASA, Lockheed Martin and Boeing. The new 747 will be more fuel efficient, more environmentally friendly and have a longer range than its predecessor.
The new 747 is expected to cost around $4 billion dollars to build. This is about twice what it cost to build the original 747. If you think that this sounds like a lot of money, you’re not alone. But it’s nothing compared to what it would cost to build a new Boeing 787 Dreamliner or Airbus A350 XWB.
The fact that the new 747 will cost so much more than the old one doesn’t mean that it’s not worth it.*
The Boeing 747 is the best airplane ever invented.
It first flew in 1969. It has been in production for almost 50 years, longer than any other commercial jetliner. And it’s still the biggest and most capable passenger plane available. I love that about it: that you can buy a brand-new, state of the art 747 today, and it will do everything the original did in 1969, only better.
The 747 was born in a different age of aviation. Back then planes were designed for speed, range, and payload. They weren’t designed to make money for airlines; that was left up to airline marketing departments and their lawyers. To add to the romanticism, the original 747s had a spiral staircase leading down from the cockpit to the lower deck lounge, where passengers could smoke and mingle with pilots while they watched movies projected on a screen.
But there’s nothing romantic about today’s airline business. These days every part of an airliner is optimized for cost and reliability: how much it costs to make and maintain each pound of an airplane compared to how much money it makes transporting those pounds across the sky. An airline flying a 747 today must have some combination of four good reasons:
1) They’re carrying a lot of people over long distances
The new 747s are the first of their kind to be built in over a decade. They feature a number of improvements, including a more fuel-efficient and quieter engine, and an improved interior design with larger seats and windows. The new aircraft will be called the 747-8 Intercontinental, and will be the largest passenger plane in the world.
The new 747s will be used by airlines all over the world, including United Airlines, who currently operates the largest fleet of 747s. The Boeing 747 is one of the most popular planes ever built, with over 1,500 units produced since it was introduced in 1970. The first 747 was delivered to Pan Am in 1970. Since then, it has been used by airlines all over the world.

Airliners are the world’s most incredible machines. They fly hundreds of people over thousands of miles, at speeds over 500 mph, for less than the price of a fancy dinner. If you’ve ever flown in an airliner, you know how incredible they are.
But have you ever wondered about how these huge machines stay up in the air? How do airliners achieve lift? Why do they need wings? Why is there an engine on each wing? Why do they need a tail? Why do some airliners have two tails? How do they steer while they are flying? What makes them so safe to fly?
This web site answers all of these questions and more. It contains information about the best airliner ever built – the Boeing 747!
The Boeing 747 is the most successful widebody passenger aircraft ever produced. More than 1,500 were built and it has been in continuous production for more than four decades. The 747 was the first “jumbo jet” and has held the title of the world’s largest airliner since its first flight in 1969. It’s also been an outstanding commercial success, with airlines around the world flying more than 144 million passengers on the 747 since it entered service in 1970.
The 747 is a large, long-range airliner that can carry 366 passengers in typical three-class configuration or up to 660 passengers in all-economy class configuration. It is powered by four engines and has a maximum speed of Mach 0.855 (about 570 mph at 35,000 feet). The newest 747 models, the -400ER and -8I/8F are capable of carrying up to 100 tons of payload over 5,700 nm.

Newer airliners tend to have smaller windows, so that the fuselage can stand more pressurization. But this is a retrograde step from the point of view of safety, because in an accident people need windows to escape.
In an emergency landing (there are other kinds of emergencies, but let’s ignore them for now), two things cause casualties: the impact and the subsequent fire. We don’t care about impact, because that can happen with any plane. But being able to escape a burning airplane is critical.
After most accidents, there is time for passengers to escape after the impact and before the fire starts. This is not always true: sometimes fire breaks out immediately, as it did aboard ValuJet 592 in 1996. But usually there is at least some time. If passengers can get out during this window they will survive; if they cannot they will not survive.
To maximize passenger survival then, you want a floor-level emergency exit on each side of the plane, with no obstructions between the seats and the exits. It should be possible for people to sit down in their seats, slide straight through the exit onto an inflatable chute or raft, and float safely away from the burning plane even if they are unconscious or incapacitated
