Oldest flying 747 finally grounded, 47 years after first flight


Re: Spinal Tap (inspired) Airways

hence the line crews used on engine start of "six turning, four burning".

And on landing the crews often described their engines as (per B-36 Captain Banda): "two turning, two burning, two joking, and two smoking, with two engines not accounted for."

The B-36 was impressive, but it had some reliability problems compared to the 747. ;)
