The end of the «queen of the skies». The aircraft manufacturer Boeing is ending its jumbo jet production. The company celebrated farewell on Tuesday (local time) at the Boeing plant in Everett near Seattle. Board member Stan Deal (57) spoke of an “aircraft that changed the world forever”.

Boeing had already announced the end of production in 2020 due to a lack of demand. Overall, Boeing made 1574 copies of the giant aircraft. The airlines now prefer smaller and more economical machines with two instead of four engines.
