Carrying U.S Presidents, other distinguished world leaders, transporting Space Shuttles, housing a telescope, carrying over 1,000 people on a special mission, and even breaking the sound barrier (unintentionally of course but she survived).
Yea, her passengers carrying days are numbered, but the Queen will be around for a good long time. Enjoy the original Jumbo folks, there won't be another like her.
Long live the Queen.

I guess the 747s of other airlines might have been a bit better.
