Boeing 747-400, United Airlines
@ San Francisco, CA
This sight of a United jumbo jet taking off will not be repeated, at least not for revenue flights. Since the January 2017 announcement by United to phase out the 747, the number in service had been drawing down steadily, marked by the this last revenue flight of the 747 on November 7, 2017. The United long-haul fleet will use newer, more efficient twin-engined aircraft. Nikon D500 w/Tamron 150-600mm, processed with Aperture.
