Using previously unseen material and footage from a variety of Avion DVDs, we take you back to some of the classic versions of the airliner that literally created mass air travel.
An informative narrative ties together some of the main elements of the 747 story, whilst never getting in the way of the action you want to hear, as well as to see.
With 747s from over sixty different airlines, the DVD starts with a review of the early days of the 747, including BOAC, Pan Am and TWA. The use of Series 100s by other national carriers is covered, plus the development of freighter versions, once rising fuel costs make early 747s redundant as passenger aircraft.
Then, on to the workhorse 747 Classic: the Series 200. Very competent and hugely popular, it's featured in action at airports around the world in Europe, the United States and Asia.
From superbly restored cine film of the early days, to wonderful airside action from Avion video cameras, this is a great 747 DVD!
Run time is about 75 minutes. Format is NTSC DVD and region-free.
