First Boeing 747 is Being Rescued and Restored!

by Adam

The first 747 rolled out of a hanger at Everett Field on September 10, 1968. Almost 30 years later, that 747 had its final landing at Boeing Field on April 6, 1995. Since then, the plane had sat outside decaying until a September 2012 essay in Pacific NW magazine sprung the Museum of Flight and the local aviation-fan community into action.

Museum of Flight curator Dan Hagedorn said this at the beginning of the restoration project – “No museum, anywhere, has ever faced a restoration project of this magnitude.”

The project is now in full swing and the aircraft has had its first paint job in decades – now in its original white, red and silver test-plane livery.
