Boeing 747

The Boeing 747 is an American wide-bouk commercial jet airliner an cargae aircraft, eften referred tae bi its oreeginal nickname, "Jumbo Jet". Its distinctive "hump" upper deck alang the forrit pairt o the aircraft haes made it ane o the maist recognisable aircraft, an it wis the first wide-bouk airplane produced. Manufacturt bi Boeing's Commercial Airplane unit in the Unitit States, the 747 wis oreeginally enveesioned tae hae 150 percent greater capacity than the Boeing 707, a common lairge commercial aircraft o the 1960s. First flewn commercially in 1970, the 747 held the passenger capacity record for 37 years.

The fower-ingine 747 uises a dooble-deck confeeguration for pairt o its lenth an is available in passenger, frauchter an ither versions. Boeing designed the 747's hump-lik upper deck tae serve as a first–cless loonge or extra seatin, an tae allou the aircraft tae be easily convertit tae a cargae cairier bi remuivin seats an instawin a front cargae door. Boeing expectit supersonic airliners—the development o that wis annoonced in the early 1960s—tae render the 747 an ither subsonic airliners obsolete, while the demand for subsonic cargae aircraft wad remeen robust weel intae the futur. Tho the 747 wis expectit tae acome obsolete efter 400 war sauld, it exceedit creetics' expectations wi production surpassin 1,000 in 1993. Bi Januar 2018, 1,543 aircraft haed been biggit, wi 11 o the 747-8 variants remeenin on order. As o Januar 2017, the 747 haes been involved in 60 huil losses, resultin in 3,722 fatalities.
