The new Boeing 747 (1967)

A jet plane mockup

The 490-passenger Boeing 747 shown here is a mockup, but the new jets will be produced in this giant plant, located north of Seattle, near Everett.

When the plant is finished, it will cover an area about the size of twenty-seven football fields and be the world’s most voluminous building — enclosing 160 million cubic feet.
