Sayonara 747

So British Airways flew their two Boing 747 aircraft out of Heathrow for the very last time today. We’ve been lucky enough to fly on one of these beasts. Half a decade since these aircraft were introduced and there are still well over 300 still flying but today marked a poignant moment for this pair of Jumbo Jets. You’ll only find the Airfix one on eBay but this one from Revell which is 1″144 scale can be found on runway eModels.
