All Nippon Airways (ANA) is retiring the last of its Boeing 747 planes today.
The airline, which once owned more than 120 of the planes, will make its final scheduled flight from Naha, in Okinawa, to Tokyo’s airport.
According to this report, “The two-deck carrier, loved for its broad-shouldered look, will ferry holiday-makers and aviation enthusiasts.”
And could it eventually make its way to Tupelo?
Universal Asset Management has landed several 747 over the past two years at its recycling operation at the airport, including ANA planes. We’ll see.
Since making its debut with the now-defunct Pan American Airways in 1970, more than 1,400 747s have been built by Boeing.
