Have seen the same with an A319 (of 4U) and different cars. Nothing special for a B747 alone. Also little birds have power.  Smile

It would be cool to see what a 777 would do, or an A380.


As long as the number of take-offs equals the number of landings...you're doing fine.

Did anyone else notice that at the beginning they blurred the Virgin Atlantic Logo but towards the end they didn't bother and the logos were there in all their glory.

Maybe they found out half way through shooting that it wasn't going to be shown on BA so they stopped editing  Smile

I also liked how they blurred the Logo, but left the registration, G-VAST, untouched...

It was filmed for a BBC programme called Top Gear.

Here is a link to the production notes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/topgear/show/production_notes/747.shtml

BBC rules I'm afraid. You might be able to cover up the logo on a coke can but it's a bit hard to do that on a 747!
