Many Thanks...

Maybe you can find it in the Commercial Aircraft consensus on the net !
Address : http://www.bird.ch/bharms/asr_boei.htm
You'll find there all information about Boeing, DC and Airbus aircrafts + registration numbers. Also all information concerning what happened with the aircrafts after it was written off from their first company...

Not sure on the exact date but I flew on G-AWNA for the first time in April 1971 from JFK-LHR. First Class was superb!

Hi I'm Ben
I was also born in May 1970. I don't know the exact date of the delivery but I know that at that time the 747-100 was an all new airplane. 1970 is the beginning of the widebody era in passenger service.
Will, when we were born Pan Am had 747-100's already!
