Excellent news.....A few years ago I'd have laughed if you told me they'd sell over 1,000 of them, given the slow sales start.

I hope they get to 1500, or even 2,000....Best airliner flying. Don't write off the -300 yet either - We could see a lot of these longbodies built.

Does anyone know if it has any special markings, cuz I know that the 1000th 747, owned by SIA has a big sticker saying "1000th 747"???

Also, does anyone know who owns the 1000th 737, and what type it is??

>>N179AA<<

I'll confirm that is the tail number.

5FP is the "nose number"

The A/C is at Tulsa for acceptance check.

with 11 757 flights, it has been my most frequent aircraft type, and I love it.
