Queen of the Skies leaves Zurich – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…” When opportunity knocks, please answer the door. Don’t keep asking who it is”.
” Your trust account is more important than your bank account”.
Another photo today of the ‘Queen of the Skies’, the Boeing 747. The 747 series has now logged more than 77.8 BILLION kilometres, which is the equivalent of 101,500 trips to the moon and back. An estimated 5.6 billion people (or 80% of the world’s population) are said to have flown in a 747. The aircraft in the photo, the 747 400 series has around 274km of wiring in it, and can fly up to 13 500km non-stop. It can carry 215,745 litres of fuel. Interestingly, the Wright brothers’ first flight could have been performed within the length of the economy section of this aircraft (45m). The photo shows a departure from Zurich, Switzerland bound for Singapore Changi, a distance of 10 318km. This service has now been replaced by a daily Airbus A380. Zurich airport, apart from being a pleasant airport to fly from, is also very photographer-friendly, even arranging special trips to the best photo spots around the airport.
