I'll always remember the first time I saw a 747 in person. I was a teenager walking through the terminal at KBOS and, passing a window, I saw nothing but a big black spot. WTH??? So I went over to the window and realized it was the nosecone of an airplane - a very BIG airplane!! :) Many flights over the years in 747s.

Last year, I finally checked off a bucket list item: upstairs EHAM-KDTW on a now-retired Delta (ex-NWA) 747.
