The Boeing 747 is a wide-body commercial jet airliner designed and manufactured by Boeing’s Commercial Airplanes division. It was first introduced in 1970 and became known as the “Jumbo Jet”. It has a distinctive hump-shaped upper deck and is one of the largest passenger aircraft in the world. It has four engines and can carry up to 600 passengers, although most modern versions have been modified to carry fewer.
