I have been in love with aviation since I was about 8 years old and I realized later on that this was my passion and that I wanted to work with planes. I even remember seeing this documentary in middle school as well. In the second half of high school, though, I decided I wanted to go into Computer Science to make video games (which was not the best move I've made in my life). But I found a cardstock model of G-CIVX in my last year. If it wasn't for this plane, I would've never got that passion to be reignited, nor would I be an official aerospace engineering major right now or realize that the 747 was my favorite plane. It essentially saved me and lead me to a better path in life. I owe it all to that model and this plane. I hope I can get a piece of her before she's scrapped as a way to remember her and connect with her in a way.

Brilliant documentary, I have taught aircraft engineering for 7 years and apart from getting Bernoulli slightly wrong this is top notch. One very minor gripe though. Can people please stop saying that air has to travel faster over a wing because it has further to go. It travels faster because the airflow is constricted by the curve of the wings upper surface causing a venturi effect and increased airflow velocity. This is explained well in how the slides inflate in another part of the same documentary. The part about Newtons laws is spot on. Overall an excellent video and very well made.

Watching this again. Sad that now all BA’s 74’s have been retired so soon. Also noticed the Flybe aircraft landing. They too have now all gone. Makes you wonder what it will be like in another 5 years time.

I used to think " Airlines must make A LOT of money" now I'm thinking, how do they make any money?!! 30,000 hours of high-paid labor for maintenance, being off the air for all that time. paying the captain and the crew and the employees at the air port and fuel etc....I mean they must make money, but their expenses!!! holy fkn sht!!
