Remark Photographer
N601US (cn 19778/27) A rather uncommon look at Northwest's first 747. The cockpit section has been removed and is now located at The Smithsonian Museum. 7 months after this photo was taken, the rest of the fuselage was dismantled for scrap metal.

I still remember how those projectors used to shake around during turbulence on old 747 from Alitalia

That would make a good house

Decapitated... Maybe a bit of a disgrace for this old lady, but certainly makes for an interesting subject!

A visitor from United States posted Thu November 13, 2008:
Well, on the bright side, the projectors and the lavatory still looks good

A visitor from Australia posted Tue March 4, 2008:
So this must be the new 747 cockpit section ejection system...similar to the F-111...:-)

This is a great photo! Sad to see her go, but it does tell a great story. I've been on the upper deck of this historic aircraft. I'm lucky to have her as my neighbor here in Washington DC. Amazing to see this giant mounted on a wall in a large building!

Rare look at this B747 cross-section. Engineering marvel.

If you like 747s, this photo is fascinating, so much information about the structure! Thank you for sharing it

How sad...looks like it has been decapitated...

A visitor from Canada posted Thu October 18, 2007:
Wow! What a piece of art. Sad to see an aircraft like that, but I just love cross-section pics. Especially 747!!! It's so great to see the aircraft from the outside and inside at the same time. Great job James!!!

Look at the old projector under bin in the middle level. Young people will take LCD on seat for granted. They can't imagine how we watch a big screen in front those good old days....

A visitor from United States posted Wed October 17, 2007:
You know, even though this is a sad photo, I really like it. It shows the structure, the design, the integration and materials very well. What amazing machines these 747 are!!!

A visitor from Brazil posted Wed October 17, 2007:
Sadly this historic aircraft has met her inevitable end. Fortunately the cockpit section has been preserved. Northwest´s first 747 is now part of aviation history, only photos and memories are left of this aircraft. Farewell N601US.

One of the more interesting pictures on a.net, congratulations. I stared at it for 5 minutes :-)

Great photo but so sad at the same time!!

A visitor from Canada posted Wed October 17, 2007:
Really usual scene!

A visitor from Finland posted Wed October 17, 2007:
Excellent capture.
This photo nicely shows how the fuselage is divided to decks.
