Boeing 747 Flight Simulator

I had an incredible chance to experience myself  Boeing 747-200 flight simulator , Kalitta Air industrial leader in worldwide scheduled and on demand cargo (42 countries in 6 continents). While photographing the young  Civil Air Patrol cadets,  I experienced their excitement , knowledge, courage and training taking off and landing. I should say (from personal experience ;-)   that taking off was easy, landing is something that require  great skills. 

Boeing 747 is Big, Fast, and Heavy!! 

250,000 lbs of cargo

364,000 lbs of fuel  

Max takeoff weight - 833,000 lbs

Length - 232'  

Wingspan - 195' 

Cruise Speed 500-510 MPH . THIS IS THE FASTEST AIRLINER in the sky.
