Airplane One of the last airworthy Boeing 747-200s flies into retirement


A Kalitta Air Boeing 747-200 delivers a soft puff of white smoke as the jet completes its second-to-last landing ever Thursday at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. On Friday, the jet and its crew will shuttle the airplane back to Kalitta Airís home base in Michigan, where the airplane will be retired for good by the cargo carrier.
In a time when the iconic jetliner has been disappearing from fleets across the globe at an astounding rate, another 747 biting the dust may not seem particularly remarkable. Yet this particular airplane stands out among the crowd: Itís one of the last airworthy 747-200s.
