Picture of the Week, August 27, 2020
I took this shot of RA001, the first 747-100, and RT401, the first 747-400, from NA001, the first 757, back in August 1988, for the 747-100 20th anniversary. I was a (much younger) Boeing flight test engineer at the time. It was a great flight- we all launched from KBFI, formed up, flew to Mt. Rainier in formation. circled a few times for photos for news and publicity, then returned to Seattle, flying 1000 ft AGL in formation over Elliott Ave, then recovered at Boeing Field. Sad to see the 747 fading away... I shot this from a Minolta film 35mm SLR, 100 ASA. Copyrighted photo by Brian Bixler. Read this article
