Additional Information

In the 1960s, Pan-Am approached Boeing to build a 400-seat plane, which became the 747. The first Boeing 747 was originally scheduled to take off on January 21, 1970, from John F Kennedy airport in New York. Due to issues with a door, cargo loading, and engines, the plane had to return to the terminal after taxiing to the runway with its 336 passengers. A substitute 747 arrived at JFK and successfully completed the flight to London Heathrow.
