Qantas Boeing 747-438
The Boeing 747-400 is the latest growth variant of the dependable 747-100 aircraft, whose lineage dates back to 09 February 1969. On this date, the first 747-100 took to the skies from Everett in Washington. Even though the aircraft was successful from its onslaught, the pressure from the world's airlines for a improved version needed to be addressed. Boeing answered this call wit the even larger 747-400. The 747-400 was launched on 22 October 1985 and first flew on 29 April 1988, creating a new era in world travel. With more powerful engine and a two-man crew for added efficiency, the 747-400 now meets these requirements by hauling larger passenger loads over greater distances in both safety and comfort.
While retaining the four-engine wide-body layout of its predecessors, the 747-400 embodies numerous technological and structural changes to produce a more efficient airframe. Its most distinguishing features versus preceding 747 models are 6-foot (1.8) winglets mounted on 6-foot (1.8 m) wing tip extension, which are found on all 747-400s except for Japanese domestic market versions.
The 747-400 is equipped with a two-crew glass cockpit, which dispenses with the need for a flight engineer, along with more fuel-efficient engines, an optional fuel tank in horizontal stabilizer, and revised fuselage/wing fairings. The aircraft also features an all-new interior upgraded in-flight entertainment architecture. As on the 747-300, passenger variants include stretched upper deck as standard.
