                  Good stuff, Joey.   Thanks for posting.    It really is an incredible airplane,  even more so considering

                  it was built over 40 years ago !!

You're welcome.  8-)

If you liked that, I'd recommend picking up Joe Sutters book "747". Joe Sutter over-saw the development of the Boeing 747. This book covers the entie development of the airplane and testing the unknowen. At that time, the largest passenger aircraft was the 707. Never before had a "Wide Body" aircrfat existed. Good read! The book was published by Smithsonian Books.
