Hi all,Just ran across this on the wire. Man, the 747 is like the energizer bunny of aircraft, it just keeps going, and going, and going.... :-) :-)Regards,JoePS - Other 747 Advanced info here:http://www.boeing.com/commercial/747family/back/back9.htmlFull Article Here:http://www.reuters.com/newsArticle.jhtml?t...storyID=8286673/snip"BOSTON (Reuters) - Boeing Co. has selected General Electric Co.'s next-generation jet engine to power the plane maker's proposed 747 Advanced airplane, GE said on Monday."....."Boeing is forecasting a potential market for 250 to 300 of the 747 Advanced airplanes, which represents more than $10 billion in revenue for the GEnx engine, GE said.GE beat out Britain's Rolls-Royce to be the supplier for the proposed plane. The two engine makers are developing engines for Boeing's new mid-sized 787, due to enter service in 2008." /End Snipsaopa.gif" border="0" alt="Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]

Found some more info, There will be a 80 inch Band behind the flight deck, and a 60 inch band behind the wings.That is a total length increase of almost 12 feet.It's still the most attractive cattle hauler around, IMHO.There is a cool graph here, thread number 17:http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/1390934/postsAlso saw this one today:http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/busi...ebboeing25.html"Boeing gets big order from Air CanadaSEATTLE

I'm not sure people understand there are currently about 17 by my count, iterations of the 747, and this is simply one more. (All I did was count the ones in the chart, so I'm probably wrong on that one) :-)Data is here:http://www.boeing.com/commercial/747family/background.htmlNice Chart on that page showing service dates, etc...Not only Good news, but a whopper of an order from Air Canada, our good friends to the North.aopa.gif" border="0" alt="Grab My FREEWARE Voice recognition Profiles here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=58334]Cessna 172 Voice Profile[/a][a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=fs2004misc&DLID=60740]FSD Avanti Voice Profile[/a].You will need the main FREEWARE Flight Assistant program to use it, get it here:[a href=http://library.avsim.net/esearch.php?CatID=genutils&DLID=39661]Flight Assistant 2.2[/a]
