Queen of the Skies
I walk up to the 747 that is waiting for us in that obscure corner of a large international airport. Navigating my way through a collection of containers and boxes, the enormous flying machine suddenly dominates my view.
Even after so many years of flying, I cannot help but feel an enormous sense of awe and pride at this sight.
There is much more to it than just being a large airplane. The majestic wings, four powerful jet engines, the unique upperdeck and the flight deck windows, towering high above the ground.
It's no wonder she earned her nickname “Queen of the Skies”.
