The last 747 leaves the Boeing factory
On Tuesday night, the last 747 rolled out of the Boeing factory in Everett, Washington, ending the construction of the plane that changed the world. The aircraft, a Boeing 747-8 Freighter, will be delivered to the cargo airline Atlas Air in early 2023. “For more than half a century, tens of thousands of dedicated Boeing employees have designed and built this magnificent aircraft that has truly changed the world. We are proud that this aircraft will continue to fly around the globe for years to come,” said Kim Smith, Boeing Vice President and General Manager of the 747 and 767 Programs. Production of the 747, the world's first twin-aisle aircraft, began in 1967 and lasted 54 years, during which a total of 1,574 aircraft were built. At 76.2 m, the 747-8 is the longest commercial aircraft in service today.
