Hello guys,

im looking for books about "Jumbo Jet" Boeing 747 wich can describe everything in history of this great aircraft: how was it developed, build, tested, first flight, troubles in building, testing etc., production, where it was build, what was the process of building, modifications, what was the difference between 100 & 100B, what was the improvements, etc etc. -200, -300, -400, ER, F, SUD.. etc.
It is desireble if a book is in inglish & in stores now, like ebay, amazon etc because in Russia it's a rare to find any of foreign books, espetially technical type.

- also i'm looking for FCOM's of 747-100, -200, -300, /F, -SR. Is it possible to find any in pdf around the web?

Thank you for your help.

Denis.

I had this book (at least I think I got rid of it in my last move): http://www.amazon.com/Boeing-747-Osp...craft/dp/1855324202/ref=pd_sim_b_4

Bear in mind it was published in 1994 but it covers pretty well the development and evolution of the 747 up to that point. Plus it has plenty of good quality photographs.

I recommend Joe Sutter's book http://www.amazon.com/747-Creating-W...-Adventures-Aviation/dp/0060882417 and Flying High http://www.amazon.com/Flying-High-Bo...UTF8&qid=1283874942&sr=1-1

You may be able to find some rudimentary stuff, although probably not whole FCOM's, here:

That might be the single best book I've ever read.

I echo N776AU's recommendation.

Joseph F. Sutter's book - entitled "747 Creating the world's first Jumbo Jet and other adventures from a life in aviation" - has just got to be the most definitive editorial available on the difficult birth process of the Boeing 747.

He is after all the "Father of the 747" and this book is extremely detailed without being too technical or boring. Joe related all the battles in the design room, on the factory floor, in the boardroom (fighting for the human resource needed) and even with its first customer - Pan American World Airways's Juan Trippe.

This is one must-have book on the bookshelve of any aviation enthusiast and professional ... mine has been coming on and off the shelve many times since I got my copy on July 8, 2007 (the same day the B787 was unveiled) autographed by Joe himself.

Speaking to Joe, you will quickly realise how passionate he is about the Boeing 747 and the team that designed and built it. He is grandfatherly and tells the story of the B747 in a very warm tone. And I can also see why he is the darling of the Japanese carriers. And he continues to this day to be an advisor to Boeing's top management and was recently in Farnborough.

Sutter's book is a must for any 747 fan. You won't get a better look into the birth of the 747.


Another great book I have is "The 'Airliner World' Book of the Boeing 747", by Mark Nicholls. It gives you a look at the history of the 747 in general, each subtype, and main variants, and it goes into some detail in the specifications and unique properties of each. It has hundreds of great pictures, and it was published in 2002, so it's not too old. I picked it up on eBay a couple years ago, so look around for it.

Not only is this book fairly cheap it is lavishly illustrated and detailed about the 747 and its development history.....
