The Queen of the Skies
One of the most emblematic airplanes of the 20th century; the Boeing 747. Four powerful engines and the iconic upper-deck with the elevated cockpit that make it also one of the most recognizable airplanes in the world.
Even after ten years of flying the 747 and having over five thousand hours on her in my logbook, I still look up to her with joy when I arrive at the airplane. The strong lines, proud stance, enormous landing gear and those four impressive engine pods that will keep me aloft across the oceans and continents.
Walking up to her, I noticed the line of towering clouds in the background complementing her appearance. Almost as if she's looking up to sky above: the arena that's her home.
