Agree the 747B was always my favorite aircraft and a safe on as well this aircraft leaves a legacy or mile stone of history and success. Nick named the Jumbo Jet in it's early day's watching the from KJFK KMIA, KLAX was a real fantastic sight to see on landing and take off's and taxing. Many plane spotters loved taking millions of photo's and watchinh the Queen of the skies touch and go from major airports around the globe
Sad to see her go too. On my recent trip to East Africa I was booked on KLM from Nairobi to Amsterdam on a B744, and I was looking forward to as as it would probably have been my last flight on the legendary lady. Unfortunately KLM cancelled this flight, had to take Turkish Airlines to get home. Good aircraft and excellent service on Turkish, but no Queen of the Skies......

KLM too, unless they have to cancel their flights due to "technical reasons".....
