Description: The Boeing 747 is a huge, short and long range, high capacity airliner intended primarily for intercontinental flights. This aircraft is capable of flying at Mach 0.85 carrying around 500 passengers. The first model, 747-100 ordered by Pan Am, entered service in 1970 with a take-off weight of 340-ton. Along with the -100 model, the 747-100B, -100SR for short range/high-capacity flights and -100SF freighter were introduced in 1970.

Subsequently, Boeing developed a wide range of versions trying to meet the full spectrum of commercial market needs. The first improved model, a 747-200, was delivered to KLM in 1971 along with -200B and -200B combi which were introduced the same year. The 747-200C model was similar to -200 model but except for one nose cargo door. The first -200C was delivered to World Airways in 1973. The -200F is a 378-ton class freighter which was delivered for the first time in 1972 to Lufthansa. The -200F model features a nose cargo door and an optional side cargo door to access the main cargo deck.

The 747-300 model features an extended upper deck for increased passenger capacity. The first -300 was delivered to Swissair in 1983. In addition to the -300 model, Boeing developed the -300M and 300/SR which also entered service in 1983. The Boeing 747SP (special performance) is a shortened version that can fly higher, faster and farther than any other wide body airliner. It was first delivered to Pan Am in 1976. The Boeing 747 described here were powered by four JT9D, RB211-524, and CF6 engines and are no longer in production.
