Very nice video. I have probably flown 500,000+ miles on her through United as a passenger.

Sorry to see her go.

Is anybody here going on the November 7th flight?  I'm a little disappointed that I missed out on getting a ticket for this one.

United doesn't have any 747-8s.

UA747..., nice.  Flightaware gives M as arrival gate.  My guess is she will be pulling in the Main Terminal Gate 13, which has dual jetways. Most UA birds dock on the Diamond Head Concourse but also Main Gates 12 and 13.

I emailed this video to Cpt. Mike Ray and below was his response:

"Ewww ... OUCH!!!
It was a bitter sweet youtube video to watch my very own 747-400 airplane being retired.
I have actually been retired 18 years, so it was no surprise ... it was a "SHOCK"!"

The 747 in this video is the actual aircraft that Cpt. Mike Ray, the famous author http://utem.com/, commanded for years.

I thought many here might be interested in that.

There she is, treated with a Hawaiian Lei , looking a bit tired but also quite pleased after her last flight. I hope she's getting a nice retirement home in a museum and doesn't have to endure the suffocating heat of the Mojave desert *sniff*

Whoever is cutting onions here, stop it!!!

Ohh man, learning to fly the QOTSII and they are all being retired in real life!

Wait a minute:   If everybody is moving to EWB airplanes, i wonder what about PMDG?  Airbus A350 might be next?  :chat::blink:  Well, i see there is a Dreamliner flying already(QW) so....  A380, A350 left...:gaul:
