  • Thanks for watching this video and I hope you enjoyed it! Please give it a thumbs up, share it and comment so Youtube spreads the news. The more interest in these types of videos I get, the more I will make. ๐Ÿ™‚ I'd love for you check out the my other video onboard the Qantas Boeing 747-400 ER too here: https://youtu.be/9KakKVYHaVw

  • Love the 747. Was glad to fly on one with Virgin Atlantic from Manchester UK to Atlanta, last September. Great you got to fly on this historic flight Paul.

  • That was a super cool video Paul! I grew up in the 70s as a young girl flying everywhere on 747โ€™s. Even domestically in the US, it was the airplane of choice. Those planes have literally been with me my entire life so itโ€™ll be sad to see them go.โค๏ธ๐Ÿ‘โœˆ๏ธ

  • Brilliant Paul, I always enjoy your vlogs but essentially this one. One of my first ever long haul flights was on a China Airlines 747 in business class (we found a deal online) from Schiphol to Bangkok Don Mueng. As the plane was almost landing I watched a man putt his golf ball in the hole on the golf course adjoining the airport and I remember thinking why is this still in the sky when it appeared to be travelling so slowly. The the Queen of the skies then kissed the runway for the smoothest landing I have ever had. 747 legend.
    Thanks for the vlog and for reviving the memory.

  • My last ride on this beautiful bird was MEL-LAX years ago, and I will never forget it! The sunset behind the wing was simply amazing! I was in seat 70 something in the back where it becomes 2 seats on the window. The view was amazing! Thank you for sharing this Paul!

  • Awesome Paul and thanks for that as my 9 yo son and I appear in your clip a couple of times waiting to board then on the plane , as were sitting in 52 JK!
    We came over from NZ to make this flight as my aviation mad son wanted to make his first flight on a 747 before it was 2 late!
    Incidentally this happened to be my 100th Boeing flight (40th on 747) with my very first Boeing flight in October 74 (as a 5yo) being on a Qantas 747 from Sydney to London via Singapore and Bahrain!

    • Hi Brendan, sorry I don't understand what you mean by the sound on takeoff? You could hear the engine spool up ๐Ÿ™‚

  • You should fly to gold Coast Airport itโ€™s amazing and they are doing the expansion for international flights it so amazing they can fit A320 to a330

  • Boeing 747 Queen of the Skies , parked next to the Boeing 787. Her replacement aircraft. This video should be titled " the Queens changing of the Guard " Great video Paul

  • I remember the first time I flew on a 747 – 400 back in 2011 from Los Angeles, California to New York, JFK (I'm only 15) it was a flight I wouldn't have thought would be so special. I flew this same flight from LA to New York another 3 times and since this was return flights I got to fly the queen a total of 8 times which from my perspective is quite special BUT in 2018 I flew the queen for the 9th and final time EVER!!! THIS was a return flight from LA to New York but on the return flight it was a 787-9 dreamliner unfortunately since I had already been flying for 20 hours on the way TO New York ( i started in Adelaide, SA) before the 747 was a tiring and draining final flight and every time I recall falling to sleep and waking up somewhere over the north eastern states of America just before descending so I never really got the full experience that way BUT since my last 747 – 400 flight from LA to New york was only a couple of years ago i knew and made sure that i took in the full 747 experience. I remember relaxing looking out the window on a clear summer afternoon looking at Las Vegas in the far distance and thinking "wow this is it, this is the last flight on this plane ever". I know this was a long story but it expresses my love of aviation and the queen of the skies ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜ฅ
