Another posted: “It’s 7:47 and time to say a fond farewell to my first jet.

“The 747 showed me #Boston from above, #Vegas from so many angles, the wonders of noctilucent cloud, but in the end, there was always no place like home.”

BA replied to one well-wisher: “The Queen of the Skies was a gem in our fleet and she served us well and earned her wings.”

BOAC [British Overseas Airways Corporation], the forerunner to British Airways, flew its first 747 flight on April 14, 1971.
