Airline bids farewell to 747

Airline bids farewell to 747


05.Nov.2019

After 48 years serving El Al airways, a Boeing 747 has made a special retirement flight between Italy and Israel.
But the pilot manning the “Queen of the Skies” on her final flight decided to make the journey a little more memorable before landing in Tel Aviv.
Dipping to 3000 metres around two hours into the jumbo jet’s final flight, the pilot swerved and manoeuvred the aircraft above the Mediterranean Sea to create a stunning silhouette of the Boeing in the sky – which was captured by FlightRadar.
This 747 was the last of its kind to be used by El Al, which has now retired its entire fleet of the large Boeing aircraft.
