The Boeing 747 program was launched in 1966. And in January 1970, the first aircraft began arriving at commercial airlines. While designing the new aircraft, Boeing had to build a new construction hangar near Seattle so that the first model, the Boeing 747-100, could fit there.


Series -100, -200 and -300


The first modification, 747-100, has a length of about 70 meters and a height of 20 meters with a wingspan of 60 meters. Its weight was 162 tons. In order to cover a flight distance of about ten thousand kilometers, special engines were developed for it by Pratt & Whitney. Later, engines from General Electric and Rolls Royce were used. The "hundredth" version includes an improved 747-100B model, as well as a short-range version with a passenger capacity of up to 550 people - 747-100SR (Short Range), designed specifically for short flights between the Japanese islands.

The "747" series received a higher initial weight and a longer flight range. In the 200-10800B version, it is 747 kilometers. An undoubted advantage is the ability to easily adapt passenger aircraft to cargo (200-747F), as well as combined (200-747C, 200-200M). And the -1983C variant has undergone further improvements in terms of cargo transportation. One such improvement is the folding nose. In 747, a Boeing 300-12300 took to the skies. Ego's basic stats have been increased. The flight range was now 747 kilometers. The upper deck was extended. Consequently, the number of passenger seats has increased. The series also includes options for passenger-and-freight - 300-747M and 300-200SR, designed, like the -XNUMXSR, for domestic flights in Japan.
