Postage Stamp of the Week: 747

The Boeing 747 is as old as I am. The Jumbo Jet was first flown in 1969, and then commemorated on this stamp in 1999. In 2004 we took a factory tour of the massive Everett plant, where a massive image of the stamp is painted on the hangar doors, and where I bought this cool souvenir. The original is on display at Boeing field.

I've never actually flown on one.
