PICTURES: 747 retired from passenger service in Japan-Flightglobal

“Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways (ANA) formally retired its Boeing 747 aircraft, marking a key milestone in the type’s gradual disappearance from the world’s airliner fleet.

The widebody, which was a domestic variant of the 747-400, operated its last flight on the Tokyo Haneda-Okinawa route, says an ANA spokesman. The particular aircraft bears the registration JA8961.

The retirement marks the end of passenger service for the 747 in Japan, where the type was once widely used by both ANA and its competitor Japan Airlines, one of the 747’s first customers.”

The Big Four Engine Boeing is slowly fading away.
