"If there is anything in my thought or style
to commend , the credit is due my parents
for instilling in me an early love of the
Scriptures. If we abide by the principals
taught in the Bible, our country will go
on prospering and to prosper; but if we
and our posterity neglect its instructions
and authority, no man can tell how sudden
a catastrophe may overwhelm us and
bury all our glory in profound obscurity."

Queen Of The Skies

Known as the Queen Of The Skies, the Boeing 747
has been in commercial service since 1970. It was
the first wide-body long-haul jet, and it is still a
mainstay of intercontinental passenger travel.

A fully loaded 747 weighs more than 400 tons
(of which 40% is fuel), and its four engines
deliver about 280 million watts of power for
a thrust of about 1,100,000 Newtons (250,000
pounds). On intercontinental flights it can
travel for more than 12 hours nonstop.

Originally, the 747 was intended for cargo
flights, but when supersonic planes never
caught on, the 747 became the world's favorite
long-haul jet. A 747-400 (the latest model,
which has small winglets at the wing tips)
can carry as many as 524 people across
the planet at almost 90% of the speed of sound.
