The advent of widebody airframes, introduced in 1969 with the Boeing 747, revolutionized jet travel by doubling previous payloads and reducing operating costs. This colorful history zooms in on the last two decades of big-jet action. Dozens of color photographs taken from rare access points on runways and in flight decks depict giant airliners like the Boeing 747, Lockheed L-1011, Douglas DC-10, and Airbus A300 at work around the world. All photographs are accompanied by descriptive captions detailing the aircraft and their groundbreaking technologies. Scenic photography depicts old, new, and one-off liveries.
