The Museum of Flight
  • Today at 3:14PM

The growing worldwide demand for air travel during the 1960s led to the development of the 747, the first Jumbo Jet. It is taller than a six-story building, has seating for 374 passengers (up to 550 in some configurations), a takeoff weight of more than 300 tons (or 10 fully loaded 18 wheel trucks), and enough fuel in its tanks to power a small automobile around the globe 36 times.
