Default Re: Here my 29th B747! KLM's 95th Anniversary Quee

That is also weird that they removed the GE logo from that one Engine and not all the others, as if it's a replacement engine maybe?

Just checked PH-BFT that did have it, yeah weird that they would leave that out, hence my thought maybe of being a replaced engine or so.

Afaik we never had 25, 50 & 75 Years right? Also weird so big question if we ever will get 100, good we got this one then, since Q4 of 2021 KLM's last B747-406/406M will take it's flight.
Way too early,as we all know the Boeing 747 was made to last as it's the best aircraft built and designs in the entire world of aviation.

Here the perfect example, this GE ex-PAA B747-121 that is 48.7 years old flew like no tomorrow as if it never aged:

The sound of them JT9D-7A's man just nuts...and the sound is so pure


Here some info of the video it's self:

BANKING LEFT / The Queen of the Skies took her last flight from Victorville today to her new home at Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson. She was ferried to her final destination by Gary Possert, one of the original Test Pilots on the Boeing 747-100. Volume up!
This airframe N747GE flew a total of 90,000 hours and 19,251 cycles. The aircraft was the oldest #B747 in active service (48.7 years), rolling off the assembly line on October 17, 1969 and making its first flight with Pan Am on March 3, 1970. Video: GE Aviation.
