The sound of the Boeing 747 classic was amazing. It was always a pleasure listening to the classic sound of the JT9D eninges and I kinda miss it. Right now in 2019 there are only a few 747 classics left in service. Most of them operate out of Dubai World Central, the new cargo airport of the UAE.
Kalitta used the Boeing 747-200 till 2017 and it was the last civil airline in the western world to use these classic workhorses. I even filmed the last departure of the last B747-200 of Kalitta out of Europe, which was operated by N793CK. Luckily an airline from Georgia took over 3 former Kalitta B747` s and they are still flying in 2019. If you want to know where the former Kalitta 742`s are currently flying you can check the flight history of 4L-GEM or 4L-GEL on flightradar24.
Thanks for watching my Boeing 747 Classic compilation and new videos every tuesday and friday.
