    Intrepidation the British gave credit to an American icon as an example of American exceptionalism

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

    Not really.

    then again the a350 and 330 and 340-600 is much more elegant than any of the boeings.

    If only the Wright Brothers could have seen this...

    mehh..better they don't see it. They would instantly sue Boeing, Airbus and all the aircraft manufactures for copyright infringement on there idea. The average American corporation will sue another company if theres money to be earned. I doubt the Wright Brothers are any exception.

    The Wright Brothers did not invent flying. I think Otto Lilienthal would be very proud to see what he has done the basics for.

    My most favorite Aircraft ever. Thank you for publishing the D-Check on this powerful Boeing 747-400 Aviation and engineering wonder that changed the world. It's amazing to see all the thousands of components, technology, engineering and proud technicians who make this huge flying machine run smoothly.

    I flew on this BA747 tail #GCIVX from Seattle to London right after this video was published in 2012. I flew on it October of 2012. Very Beautiful plane and very special knowing that I flew on this exact plane.

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

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