The basic version of the aircraft was the passenger Boeing 747-200B, which was commissioned in February 1971. During the first three years of production, the Boeing 747-200 was equipped with four turbojet engines Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7R4G2s with a thrust of the order of 243,5 kN. The flight range of the first versions with these engines, at full load, was 9700 kilometers. Later aircraft, Boeing 747-200B, used General Electric CF6-50E2s turbojet engines with thrust 233,5 kN, as well as RB211524-D4s engines with thrust 236,2 kN produced by RollsRoyce. The range of flight versions with new engines reached 11000 kilometers. At the maximum load, the range of the Boeing 747-200B is about 10670 kilometers.

In three-class cabin configuration can accommodate 366 seats. The number of passenger seats, plus build business in the economy is 423 places. The maximum odnoklassovoy cabin layout, seating is 490 places.

In this model, access to the cargo hold via the lifting up of the nose fairing. Also, some versions of this aircraft have additional cargo door size x 3,04 3,4 meters, which is located just behind the wing on the left side. The cargo compartment of Boeing 747-200F, possible shipping up to 113 tons. The first Boeing 747-200F was handed over in operation in 1972 year, the airline "Lufthansa.
