Paul Whitehouse - Jumbo Over Burstow - Boeing 747
Boeing 747 British Airways Airliner Christmas Xmas Card by Aviation Artist Paul Whitehouse
"Queen of the Skies" for over three decades, the Boeing 747
has served with almost every airline of note and was the flagship of many.
British Airways would buy its first 'Jumbo' in 1974 and received the
first of the Boeing 747-400 in 1989. Amazingly it is reckoned that the last
'Jumbo' will not leave BA service until 2024, which if true would mark its 50th
anniversary, quite a record.
