Lift off, Queen of the Skies – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day….” Life is a gift. Are you going to unwrap it or leave it in the box”
” Beauty only gets attention but personality captures the heart”.
An estimated 6 million parts go into the making of the 747 jumbo jet, half of them being fasteners. It has around 274 km of wiring and about 8km of tubing. The tail of a 747 is about the same height as a 6 storey building. When it was first built, around 75 000 engineering drawings were used. The 747 series has been extremely sucessful, and has logged around 78 billion kilometres in flight, equivalent to about 102 000 return trips to the Moon, and is said to have carried around 5.6 billion passengers in total. Newer models of the 747 can carry over 240 000 litres of fuel. Interesting that the Wright brothers first flight could have been performed within the 45m length of the economy cabin of a 747. The 747 400 seen in this photo is departing from Curacao in the Caribbean for the flight back to Amsterdam. My experience of KLM is that they are no longer a good airline, with poor service, poor aircraft interiors and poor customer service. Whilst they may have been good at one time, I stopped using them a long time ago. They have been overtaken by other airlines, and I do not recommend them.
