Choices Of B747 Types

Sun Oct 08, 2000 9:30 pm


Hey everyone!

Recently, many airliners are retiring their B 747-100, B 747-200, B 747 SP etc etc. Would you think that there will be less chance for us aviation enthusiasts to be on one of them? if not, where about in America can I still be on a 747-100 or 200? Or even SP?

Any ideas are welcome!

Good luck!

Best Wishes:
Desmond

Maybe the only vintage B747's will only be kept at museums and not the hanger. But of course the -400 will remain in service for maybe ten more years, and the A3XX & 747X versions will take over. Long live the B747!

In America, no SP's here. UAL and NWA have some -200's left (and I believe NW has 1 -100 still flying, but will be retired soon {N601US}.)

Yes ...ONE SP in America, go out to LAX and book a flight on Corsair to Paris, you should travel on their 747SP F-GTOM http://www.corsair.fr/international/index_en.htm

If Tower Air is doing military charters, maybe someone in the military will get a chance to fly in a rundown 747-100.

UAL still ownes one(747SP), but it is leased out to NASA.

Avaition Lover,
The 747-400 will be around for another 30 years. Well, At least, 20 years.

Airlines like United are still getting new 747s from boeing, and they have a life span of about 30+ years. Expect to see them way into the future.
