Oldest flying 747 finally grounded, 47 years after first flight


Re: Puny fifth engine in that pic

Maybe that explains what I saw in 1969 - a 747, flying at altitude, heading off the Washington State coast with an instrumentation boom and contrails.

Fun times in Seattle for a newcomer ... 75% jobs lost in Boeing's commercial aircraft business ... wasn't too good back home at Motorola either ...

Boom and bust ... churn and burn ... tech business for you ... don't tell the kids ...
