For many, the Boeing 747 is more than merely a means of air travel. Affectionately called the “Queen of the Skies? it has transformed the globe and for more than half a century it has carved its own niche in the history of aviation. The author has been fortunate, as an airline pilot and aviation writer, to have witnessed a range of interesting 747 operations, from flying over Antarctica to ferrying a fifth engine beneath the wing. From charter flights for charity to amazing sights from the flight deck set against backdrops as varied as the Pacific Ocean to the English Channel. This book takes the reader on a journey aboard this remarkable aircraft.
