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.

The Boeing 747-400 is the only 747 model in production incorporating major aerodynamic improvements over earlier models such as winglets to reduce drag. Along with major aerodynamic improvements, the 747-400 introduces new digital avionics, lightweight aluminum alloys, a new flight deck and entertainment systems. It is externally similar to 747-300 model.

The four-engine 747-400 can be powered alternatively by Pratt & Whitney PW4062, Rolls Royce RB211-524 or General Electric CF6-80C2 engines rated approximately at 60,000 pounds each. More than 240,000 pounds of thrust enable the 747-400 to travel at Mach 0.85 while performing intercontinental flights.

The Boeing 747-400ERF is the cargo transport variant of the 747-400ER airliner. It can transport more payload thanks to not being fitted with the fuel tanks compartment of the -400ER model. The first 747-400ERF Freighter was delivered to Air France in 2002. It can be powered either by four Pratt & Whitney PW4062 or four General Electric CF6-80C2 engines.
