Yes today is 07/04/07 if you wirte the date the european way !
Its therefore the oppurtunity to make a little tribute to the queen of the skies

I could make a whole tribute thread like Wings does but I will not start to copy his great threads. Thus I will just post a pic of each type of 747 that has been released .
(p.s I wanted to start a 737 thread but it was pretty displaced given the fact the same day the Garuda 737 had crashed)

Wingtips look odd on 747-8. Probably like the Shark tail on 787 just something that makes it look advanced but is later removed from the design

Too bad the 748 doesn't have wingtips...loos more like a 747-300 and not as sexy as the 744!

It's 727 Day! (by Glom Feb 7 2007 in Civil Aviation)

Its funny how the dream livery makes A/c look much nicer and aerodynamical. A good move for Boeing to make their porduct more attractive to cusomers (if for eample you compare to Airbus livery). However with the LH livery this a/c doesn't look anywhere as sexy

I do the calender thing the US way, but I'll celebrate anyway. I hope after NW exits bankruptcy they will order the 748 and 748F. It would be cool to see NW order the 773ER, but I am hoping they will order the 748. Hopefully Boeing will launch the 749. Imagine what it would look like!  hyper

You only get Airbus week using the American dating system (except for 03/10, October 3 for A310), but you get Boeing week using both systems (every 100 years though).

Nice tribute to a great airliner.

We have missed 737 back in March but we have 757,767 and the best of them all 777 to come!  bigthumbsup . We will also have the first flight of the 787 in the 8th month as well if all goes to plan.

26 Post contains images Smashme33 : I'll bring the E-champagne!
27 Post contains images Plunaaircanada : yea thats right lol my mom told me today is the 747 date, she realized, but i dont pay attention to dates. we are no getting another 747 day in a 1000
28 AirTranTUS : It only has to be 100 if you just use the last 2 digits. "07" repeats every 100 years.
29 AlexPorter : 707 doesn't get a day - it gets the whole month (7/07) and I think it works in both dating systems.
30 Post contains images Plunaaircanada : your right, we use the 2 last numbers! but anyway we still lived this day even if its not celebrated, well its the first one since the 747 wasnt here
