What makes the Boeing 747 so important to Washington State?
The Boeing 747 is an iconic and beloved aircraft that has been in operation for over 50 years.
It was first introduced in 1970 and quickly became the world’s most recognizable passenger plane. Its main building facility is the Everett Plant, which just happens to be one of the largest buildings in the world covering over 98 acres.
In fact, the 747 still holds many records for commercial aviation, including having flown more passengers than any other aircraft. Pan Am wanted a jet that could carry more passengers and reduce its cost by 30% hence the birth of the 747.
The Boeing 747 was revolutionary from its inception because it introduced a number of new technologies that had never been seen before in commercial aviation. This included four powerful engines that allowed for faster speeds than other planes at the time as well as greater fuel efficiency due to its larger size and higher capacity fuel tanks.
The 747 is iconic, heck it even carried the space shuttle, and will go down in aviation history as one of the greatest innovations ever made in flight.
