Let me just leave it here;

Too far ahead of it’s time…? Well, it’s a legend anyway, as it is the first ever plane with a full double deck body.

It’s also sad as potentially 3500 people could loose their job…


#4

It’s sad that it’s the end of the Jumbo era


#5

This Probably also be one of the last 4 engined passenger planes…


#6

Wouldn’t be surprised if it turns into like the MD-80 or the 757, where airlines eventually see the value of the plane and flock to get the limited number of them.

Given they cannot even sell them second hand, and the first ones are already being broken for parts I don’t think they will enjoy a life like that. They were just too big.
