Wow...very cool...as an aviation nut, I am very envious of the opportunity you've had to get such a tour! Love the shots of the flight deck as well!

Quite a feat of engineering, although quite ugly to look at form the outside I am afraid.

1st class looks to be just that, 1st class!

Yeah, she is quite a feat of engineering. But she is big and slow. The 747 is way faster crossing the atlantic. The first class is just great, they will use the same first class on the new 747-8 that they will be getting next year. I am looking forward to flying that one.

Aren't there only a select few airports that can handle this aircraft as well?
