The Boeing 747 is a wide-body, four-engine jetliner which rose to aviation fame in the late 1960s. The first 747 completed its virgin flight in 1969 and remained the largest passenger jet in the world until 2005. Its wingspan is 64.44 m and the vertical elongation at the wingtip can be up to 16 m. It is also well known for its “hump” silhouette which earned it the nickname "Jumbo Jet". Compared to previous 747s, the most significant aerodynamic improvement in the 747-400 is the wing size, which is 1.8 m (6 ft) longer with a 6 ft. high winglet that is angled upwards and slightly outward.
The former Boeing 747-400M rolled off the production line in 1990 in Everett with MSN 24202 and was christened “City of Freetown”. After 27 years of Loyal service for Sky Team member, the PH-BFF was retired in 2017 and finally recycled in 2018 in Enschede / Netherlands.
The BFF is actually a 747-400M combined passenger and cargo version (also known as a “combi”), Which makes this edition extra special.
