El Al “draws” image of jumbo to commemorate its very last Boeing 747 flight

제출됨
 
After 48 years of service, El Al joins the aviation ranks in saying good bye to the Boeing 747. To honor the jumbo’s send off, just two hours before its arrival into Tel Aviv (TLV), the airline leveled off at 10,000 feet and made a series of turns to “draw” a picture of a 747.

After my comment was not accepted because of an inaccurate password, I can't remember the earlier comment that I had typed.All I can say is that the Boeing 747 was one of aviation's most beautiful commercial aircraft. El Al gave a fitting send-off to such a lovely aircraft.

I presume all passengers received a picture autographed by the artist?

I have never flown on a 747
I guess i had better do it soon, before they are all replaced

Boeing is still turning out a few new ones; you just have to seal yourself in a box if you want a ride...

I remember being on a NW 747 bringing grunts home from Viet Nam in the aisles, restrooms, top deck, tears in my eyes, - bringing them home.

Why are people so damn negative these days?? So many political comments, politically correct comments and all the like! We live in an era of PUSSIES!
JohnSmythe
For someone against negativity, you sure belched some negativity out in your post.
Hope your day (and life) gets better.
Cheers

looks a little too perfect. I mean those look like some tight turns, like seat belt sign on, trays in the upright position, hold on to your lugnuts....
alancurtis2
Based on reading the map and scale from FlightAware, looks like 200 MPH and 2.5mi radius turns, which I work out to be on the order of 0.01g turns...

Right? At first I thought that was an icon representing a 747, and couldn't figure out where the "drawing" was.
yumilori
it was a ferry flight without any passengers

@RECOR10 Think of the passengers who were delayed by an hour an a half :)

If it was announced prior as a "Final Flight", maybe there were some 'Enthusiasts' or 747 fans who specifically booked to be on that historic flight. They may have appreciated the extra time on board.

There were people held against their will? Surely we can sue Boeing right :-)

El Al Celebrates 747 Retirement By “Painting” 747 In The Sky

To celebrate its last Boeing 747 flight, El Al flew a pattern that drew a 747 in the sky over the Mediterranean. The last scheduled 747 flight (1747) was from Rome to Tel Aviv.
