Boeing 747-100, nicknamed "Jumbo Jet", is a wide-body passenger aircraft, which laid the foundation for a whole family of long-range Boeing 747 airliners. This aircraft has become an extremely significant aircraft in transport aviation. The need to create a passenger aircraft with a large capacity, was the increase in the number of passenger air transport in the mid-sixties. This led to a greater concentration of aircraft at airports around the world. And in order to relieve the main airports, and was created by Boeing 747-100, which reduced operating costs for long-haul and international air travel.

The first sketches of the new aircraft were demonstrated in August 1965. And in 1966, the company Boeing Commercial Airplanes, was presented with the configuration of a two-deck airliner that received the digital designation "747". The original design of the aircraft assumed a completely two-deck design, but then because of difficulties, the project was revised in favor of lengthening the fuselage and reducing the volume of the upper deck. For this reason, the profile of the Boeing 747 aircraft has acquired its recognizable "hump". The first customer for a new long-haul aircraft was Pan American World Airways, which made the initial order for 25 of Boeing 747 aircraft.

Boeing 747-100, became the first modification of the family of Boeing 747. The plane was a monoplane low-wing shape with a sweep in 37,5 degrees. Wingspan is 59,64 meters at the length of the fuselage in 70,66 meters. Under the wing of the airplane, in the gondola, four turbojets Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7A were installed with the thrust of the order 208,9 kN.

The cabin was constructed originally universal, so that later had the opportunity to convert passenger planes to transport and cargo variants.

The three-class layout Boeing 747-100 366 cabin can accommodate seats in the two-class passenger seats 452. When economical odnoklassovoy interior layout, Boeing 747-100, capable of accommodating passengers 490.

The first Boeing 747-100, was built 2 September 1968 years. He was raised in the air in February 9 1969 years. After passing all the tests and obtain a certificate of flight, the aircraft was handed over to the airline's operation «Pan American», which in January 1 1970 year made its first commercial flight on this plane. The first European airline, which has received Boeing 747-100, became German «Lufthansa», in which the three data of the aircraft were delivered.

The latest version of the basic aircraft was delivered in «Pan American» 2 1976 year in July. Then the attention of the company «Boeing Commercial Airplanes» has been given to the production of upgraded aircraft Boeing 747-100. Which have the following options:

- Boeing 747-100V, an improved version of 747-100, with enhanced design of the wing, fuselage and landing gear. This version is also equipped with an engine Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7Fs with traction 215,1 kN. The first customer for this version of the aircraft was the airline «Iran Air», which received its first Boeing 747-100V, 2 1979 year in August.

- Boeing 747SR (Short Range), version of the aircraft, designed specifically for the airlines short and medium range, but with a large number of passengers. In fact, Boeing 747SR, is a short-range version of the Boeing 747-100. This version has a lower fuel capacity. Maximum passenger Boeing 747SR, was increased to 550 people.

- Boeing 747-100M, cargo-passenger version of the aircraft with a cargo door located on the left side, just behind the wing bearing.

- Boeing 747SCA, version, designed for the transportation of the space shuttle, "shuttle"

- Boeing 747LL, version of the aircraft used to test various turbojet engines.

The last aircraft in the version Boeing 747-100SR, was placed in the «Japan Airlines» in September 1986 years. Over the entire period of production from the 1986 1986 year, it was built about 250 airliners Boeing 747-100 with all modifications.
