Boeing 747-400


The first version of the B747 (Jumbo Jet) series flew in 1969. The B747-400 followed in 1988 including numerous improvements among others in terms of range, performance and number of passengers. The new equipped cockpit allowed to reduce the number of pilots from three to two. The maximum takeoff weight is 395 tons, the maximum range is 13400 km. The B747-400 is equipped with four turbofan engines, each with 276 kN thrust and 4.3 tons weight.
