RIP Joe Sutter - show your 747s!

Postby cg_341 on Wed 31 Aug 2016, 7:00 am

Woke up this morning to the sad loss of Joe Sutter, "father of the 747", aged 95.

If anyone hasn't read his book on the 747, amongst other things, I strongly recommend it! https://www.amazon.co.uk/747-Creating-W ... 0060882425

So now, let's see your 747s...

Here are the ones I could dig up, either taken a number of years ago on an cheap bridge camera or more recently on my phone.

First 3 from LGW

Next 2 aren't exactly the best quality, but something a little different.
