N624US / 6624 (cn 21706/377) Last takeoff of Northwest B747-200 for scheduled flight!! Goodbye Seattle. We take the last scheduled pax flight of Northwest B747-200 from Seattle to Minneapolis as NW170 in a dull day. Terminal A and S of Seattle airport are clearly showing right in front of my eyes. Today is a really special day for old aircraft, Note there is a DC-3 parked at the Terminal A. [ Canon 350D ]

Great and also sad shot. btw this has nothing to do with this photo but i saw my first NWA A330 yesterday in boston around 4:30 or 5:00. can anybody tell me the flight and where its origins were?

A visitor from - posted Wed November 21, 2007:
Great Shot! It is kind of sad that NWA was operating it that long, I never knew they still had them until today. Now... all we need it to either get rid of the DC9s or re-engine them.

I grew up watching these old beauties take off near my house in SEA - sad to see them go. Thanks for capturing the moment here!

Saw here outside the hanger on the 13th, I was hoping she was doing a charter...sad to see her go!

Great picture

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 17, 2007:
I seen this aircraft parked outside the NWA hanger in Minneapolis the next day.

A visitor from United States posted Mon September 17, 2007:
Very historical shot, with the AA DC3 and this old NW 742. Also nice to capture the Asiana 772 and China Airlines 343 at the S terminal.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun September 16, 2007:
Great shot! Glad you mentioned the DC-3 in the background. At a glance, I would have missed it.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 16, 2007:
Awesome! By the way that A330 there just finished its first passenger flight right before this picture was taken, and then this 742 had its last passenger flight (with NW anyway). One of life's little ironies.

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 16, 2007:
Sad to see NW's 742's go out of service, why can't they retire the DC-9's!

A visitor from United States posted Sun September 16, 2007:
Another great pic in The Emerald City! Actually, this is one of the best photos at the big airport that I've seen so far.
