The last Boeing 747-100 departed to be showcased at Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, Arizona, one of the world’s largest non-government funded aerospace museums.
This is the 25th 747-100 built and it began its life with Pan American World Airways, and finally served with GE Aviation.
The 747-100 was the long range, wide-body airliner powered by Pratt & Whitney Engine JT9D – 7A engines, entered service in January 22, 1970., and the Last B747-100 was delivered in 1986.
The first 747-100s were built with six upper deck windows (three per side) to accommodate upstairs lounge areas.
Many 747-100s were converted into freighters later. A total of 168 747-100s were built; 167 were delivered to customers, while Boeing kept the prototype, City of Everett.
