I don’t understand why I’m fascinated with this video. Maybe it’s because of how cavernous the inside of the Cathay Pacific 747-8 is or maybe it’s because of how many tie downs they used to secure the load in the cargo hold, or maybe it’s something else altogether. Did you like this video?
This is a pretty graphic video, shot from a dash cam, that shows as a Boeing 747 crashes at Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan. The video, is really quite spectacular. It shows the plane stalling on takeoff, then veering to the left, crashing and exploding. If I were to venture a guess, I’d say the […]
I got this shot of this Air China Cargo Boeing 747 from Founder’s Plaza at DFW airport the last time I was there. The Airbus A380 might be bigger, but the Boeing 747 is a much better looking airplane.
I got lucky and got this shot of Air Force One flying overhead yesterday. President Obama came to Austin and I was, apparently, at the right place and at the right time. Of course, we know this is a VC-25, aka Boeing 747-200 that was converted for use as a VIP transport. It’s only called […]

I don’t know about you, but I think the United Tulip livery is much better looking than the Continited livery. Having said that, I think that Continental was a much better airline and had […]
Space Shuttle Discovery, a photo by Heather F on Flickr. The Space Shuttle Discovery on her last flight. She was flown to D.C. for display at the Smithsonian. Sad as this may be, I hope that 20 years from now we’re using something a lot better than the shuttle for our low earth orbit hops.
The White Mobile Armour, a photo by tsuna72 on Flickr. I love this perspective. The 747 is a beautiful plane from just about any angle that you look at it. It seems like that nose cone has had some work done to it since it’s cleaner than the rest of the plane. Or maybe I’m […]
At the John F. Kennedy Airport 05/1973, a photo by The U.S. National Archives on Flickr. Cool photo of a Pan-Am Boeing 747-100 At JFK Airport. The photo was taken in May 1973 and is from the National Archives. Here’s a cool comment about this plane on Flickr by TVL1970: This is Pan Am Boeing […]
