Airplane

IMO, we're witnessing the sunset of the 747's passenger career. I don't think it will be much longer before the passenger use of the aircraft will be vary rare.

You'll still see them in use for cargo for a while. They're big, and can economically carry a lot of weight and handle bulky cargo. With a lot of spare parts sitting in the desert, they'll be economical for cargo duty for a while yet.
