Notes:

Instantly recognized by passengers around the world, the Boeing 747 is in a class by itself. The 747-400 continues the 747 family legacy by integrating advanced technology into one of the world's most modern and fuel-efficient airliners.

Currently the only 747 model in production, the 747-400 incorporates major aerodynamic improvements over earlier 747 models, including the addition of winglets to reduce drag, new avionics, a new flight deck and the latest in-flight entertainment systems. And, the 747 continues to be the world's fastest subsonic jetliner, cruising at Mach .85 -- or 85 percent of the speed of sound. Along with the popular Boeing 777, the 747 is a key element of the Boeing long-range market strategy. More..

Boeing has taken another huge step in the continuing evolution of the world's most recognized jetliner the 747. The 747-400ER Family - available in both passenger and freighter versions - will provide the same size as current 747-400s, and offers an even more unbeatable combination of payload, range and speed. More..

With the lowest operating cost per ton-mile in the industry, the new-technology Boeing 747-400 Freighter is the all-cargo transport member of the 747-400 family. It can carry twice as much cargo, twice as far, as the competitor's leading freighter. Along with earlier versions, 747 Freighters - about 225 in all - carry half of all the world's freighter air cargo. More..

The Boeing 747-400 Combi helps airlines around the world meet their long-range passenger and cargo requirements - with a single airplane. The versatile 747 Combi, first introduced in 1975, blends the best of both worlds. It's the only commercial airplane flexible enough to simultaneously perform both passenger and freighter missions. More..

The Longer-Range 747-400 airplanes, launched in late 2000, are the latest demonstration of Boeing's commitment to continually improving the 747 to meet evolving market demands. These airplanes are a tangible demonstration of Boeing's commitment to the future of the 747. More..

Did you know the 747-400 wing measures 5,600 square feet (524.9 sq m), an area large enough to hold 45 medium-sized automobiles? More facts..
