    Geeze...I hope so. That thing is flying right over my roof. Wonder if the pilots drew straws to see if it was going to stay in the air.

    The Boeing 747 is heading for retirement

    Boeing's classic design made the 747 Queen of the Skies for decades. But as engineering and airline economics have moved on, this 70s superstar has become a thing of the past. Stephen Bayley says a fond farewell.

    Yes the 747 was the staple of long haul flights for ages. I remember my first trip in a 747 - I had a seat right up front on the lower deck - felt strange with no cockpit in sight.

    I've been on many 777s but yet to fly on the 787.
