The wide-body, long-haul aircraft Boeing 747-200, is a logical development of the aircraft Boeing 747-100And differs from the latter, the presence of more powerful engines, higher takeoff weight and increased flight range. On the creation of Boeing 747-200, affected by the increase in passenger traffic and demand for long-distance international transport of high load.

Boeing 747-200, like its predecessor, has the shape of a monoplane with a low-shaped swept wing, under which there are four turbojet engines located in the nacelles. The aircraft has a double-deck design. Moreover, the upper deck is much shorter than the bottom. The first models of the Boeing 747-200, on the upper deck, had three portholes on each side, as on the 747-100 version, but later, subsequent passenger aircraft began to be equipped with ten windows on the second deck on each side.

For the first time, the Boeing 747-200 was introduced in 1970. The first flight was made in October 1970. 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 Pratt & Whitney JT9D-7R4G2s turbojet engines with an 243,5 kN thrust. The range of the first versions with these engines, when fully loaded, was 9700 kilometers. On later aircraft, Boeing 747-200B, General Electric CF6-50E2s turbojet engines with 233,5 kN thrust and RB211524-D4s thrust engines with 236,2 kN from RollsRoyce were used. The range of versions with new engines reached 11000 kilometers. At the maximum load, the Boeing 747-200B's flight range is about 10670 kilometers.

The cabin of the aircraft in a three-class configuration allows you to place 366 passenger seats. The number of passenger seats in the business layout plus economy is 423 seats. At the maximum, single-class cabin layout, the passenger capacity is 490 seats.

Subsequently, based on the basic version of the Boeing 747-200B, several modifications of the aircraft were released. So in the 1971 year was produced cargo version of the aircraft, designated Boeing 747-200F. In this model, access to the cargo hold through the lifting up the nose fairing. Also, some versions of this aircraft have an additional cargo door 3,04 x 3,4 meters in size, which is located immediately behind the wing on the port side. In the cargo compartment of the Boeing 747-200F, shipping up to 113 tons is possible. The first Boeing 747-200F was commissioned in 1972 year, to the airline "Lufthansa».

It has been released and a convertible version of the aircraft, designated the Boeing 747-200C. This version allows you to convert the passenger compartment in the cargo compartment and vice versa. mixed interior configuration is also possible. Boeing 747-200C can be optionally equipped with additional cargo door or a folding nose cone.

Version Boeing 747-200M, is a combined version of the aircraft and can simultaneously carry both passengers and payload on the rear fuselage.

In total, by the end of production in 1991, 393 units of the Boeing 747-200 aircraft of all versions were built. Of these, 225 were passenger aircraft. Today, many aircraft remain in operation with airlines, although most of the passenger Boeing 747-200, converted into cargo options.
