Format: Paperback
The book gives you an introduction into the "Birth of a Giant" and explains the evolution from the drawing board to the manufacturing of the "Queen of the Skies". All model ranges are covered and in combination with the pictures and a statistical section on Orders, deliveries, numbers in service makes this book worthwhile reading.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The book is great except for one thing. There are not nearly enough, or any, photo's of the inside cabin. I would certainly like see what a 747 looks like on the inside with various views of all 3 levels of the giant. Unfortunatly, the book only shows you one 1969 photo near the front of the book. That of the first
class area. Otherwise, a great book.

Format: Paperback
As with their other collaborative efforts, Norris and Wagner present us with a wealth of quality photographs on the best-known airliner. More than that, the authors take us on a journey of how the 747 came to be and where it is today. Each series and variant is surveyed; the information is concise and accurate. Technical and historical content are well balanced. While this book may not be the visual feast laid out before us in the Airliner Color History series, this book is highly engaging and well worthwhile to any airliner aficianado, with plenty of worthwhile, solid information.

Format: Paperback
Not so informative to bore an aircraft enthusiast, yet provides enough to ponder an aircraft engineer. This contours enough history and facts about the mighty 747 that it's worth reading twice. Ive used this book for foot noting a few aviation college classes. If you like airplanes like I do, you'll enjoy this book.
