The introduction of the Boeing 747 into service in 1970 heralded a new era in air transport. The first wide-bodied airliner, and the first to be powered by turbofans: immediately it captured the imagination of the press who dubbed it the Jumbo Jet.

Capable of carrying up to 500 passengers, it drastically reduced seat per mile costs and, significantly, put affordable intercontinental travel within the reach of every man. Here, the full story of the design, development and production of this classic airliner is told, with hundreds of illustrations, including colour photographs of liveries.
