747: The Story of the Boeing Super Jet
By Douglas J. Ingells

Here, written in exciting, narrative style, is the behind-the-scenes story of the birth of the world's largest commercial jetliner and the history of The Boeing Company's many contributions in the building of the greatest transportation system the world has ever known - the international family of scheduled air lines.

Right before your eyes, inside the world's largest building, birthplace of the 747 "Super Jet" at Everett, Washington you see the "pieces come together" in a moving panorama of pictures and text describing "The Incredible Happening."

You ride "up front" with the test pilots on the maiden flight of the largest commercial airliner, and take part in subsequent tests on the ground and in the air that pronounced her safe and sound, and ready to take her place in the transportation family.

There's all of this and more in these pages as the "Diary of a Sky Queen" reveals the secrets of her past, present and future.
