Boeing 747 40th Anniversary Infographic

Aside from the obvious information design aspects associated with the embedded image below… Am I the only 30-something male in this country who is nearly moved to tears from the memory of his first sight of, or ride on, a Boeing 747?

Just look at that thing! During my first flight on one of these marvels I was so young and foolish I didn’t even care they had a bar… The spiral staircase alone (along with my bowl haircut and 5-year-old boyish charm) was enough to have stewardess after stewardess take me up and down to see the cockpit and view the flying drunkards.

I’m still in love with these jets, glad that their birthday still makes SOMETHING older than I am… Although I confess I’ve had no further luck with stewardesses since that first fateful ride 😉
