    That seat tester guy would hate flying for real, he would just feel like he was at work for 14 hours straight

    I have to say, out of all the documentaries I've ever watched, this has to be one of the best ever.

    I have to say the queen of the sky is better looking than the A380.

    In my humble opinion the 747`s are and will be the best aircraft.

    JDProductions INC. Exactly what is "aluminium"? ... Is it something like "aluminum"? Is it lighter than Aluminum or is a new metal? I don't get it!

    The most beautiful, aircraft ever designed, in my opinion. I was so glad to learn recently that the next generation of Air Force One will still be a Boeing 747.

    The A380 looks like an obese wale and the 747 looks like an elegant bird

    I don't understand why the US doesn't have very many interesting documentaries of this topic.

    As a career aviation mechanic, I must say this is the best video production of its kind that I have ever seen. Very well done. Regards from Florida.
