Quite possibly since Malaysian are retiring their 747s at the moment.
Wow talk about sad. I have a personal touch to that airplane.
When I first hired on at Boeing I started out as a flight line pre-flight and Delivery Tech. I worked on that very airplane from the moment it left the factory
till we delivered her. Doing final tests, inspections and repair if needed.
has it really been that long?
My grandfather had essentially the same job for a short time after he left the air force(kc-135/b-52 maintainer) Sounds like that was before your time though. He was on the crew that readied Pan Am’s first 747.
