Boeing 747 General Information

The Boeing 747 is a widebody commercial airliner and cargo aircraft, often known by its original moniker, Jumbo Jet, or the Queen of one of the planes Cielos.Es world’s most recognizable, [4] and was the first widebody ever produced. Produced per unit of Boeing commercial aircraft in the United States, the original version of the 747 was two and half times the size of Boeing 707, [5] one of the common large commercial aircraft of the 1960s. First flown commercially in 1970, the 747 had the passenger capacity record for 37 years.
The four-engine 747 uses a double deck configuration of its length. It is available in passenger, cargo and other. Boeing designed the 747 of the hump as the upper deck to serve as a first class lounge or (as is the general rule today) extra seating, and to allow the aircraft that can be easily converted to a cargo carrier by removal of the seats and the installation of a front loading door. Boeing did so because the company expects supersonic aircraft (whose development was announced in early 1960) for the 747 and other subsonic aircraft obsolete, while the belief that the demand for subsonic cargo aircraft would be robust in the future. [7] The 747 in particular is expected to become obsolete after 400 were sold, [8], but exceeded the expectations of his critics with production passing the 1,000 mark in 1993 [9] In December 2011, 1,427 aircraft were built, with 97 of 747. – 8 remaining variants in order.
The 747-400, the most common passenger version in service, is one of the fastest airliners in service with a high-speed subsonic cruise of Mach 0.85 to 0.855 (up to 570 mph, 920 km / h). It has a range of 7,260 miles nautical intercontinental (8,350 miles or 13,450 kilometers). The 747-400 passenger version can accommodate 416 passengers in a typical three-class configuration, 524 passengers in a typical two-class, or 660pasajeros in a high density of a single class configuration. The new version of the aircraft, the 747-8, is in production and was certified in 2011. Deliveries of the freighter version of 747-8F to launch customer Cargolux began in October 2011, the passenger version 747-8I is to continue in 2012. The 747 will be replaced by the Boeing Y3 (part of Boeing Yellowstone Project) in the future.
