First: somewhen in 1981, LH B747-200 from FRA to JFK in F
Last: 3 November 2006, UA B747-400 N173UA from SFO to FRA in Y+
42 B747 flights in total so far, 170279 miles - the aircraft family I've travelled furthest in so far, in Y, Y+, C and F class, the only aircraft family on which I've experienced all classes, and the only one on which I've flown to all 6 continents accessible by scheduled flights.

First was Iran Air's B747-100 series, EP-IAM from CGN-CGN, chartered by AirEvents on the 9th July 2005. My most recent was on B-LFB, a B747-400, flying HKG-LGW with Oasis Hong Kong Airlines on the 26th June this year.

My first 747 was a BOAC -100 which we took from Singapore to Frankfurt via somewhere in the Middle East and it would have been April or May in 1971 I think. I was 9 years old and had no interest in aircraft at all. On the same journey we also took a 707 of Air Niugini from Sydney to Singapore via Port Morsby and a KLM DC-9 from Frankfurt to Rotterdam according to my dad.
Most recent trip on a 747 was a 400 of Qantas from Hong Kong to Sydney in June 2003.
I remember when the DC-3 was new!
