The original Boeing 747, a wide-body jet airliner and cargo aircraft, was introduced in 1970, with several new variants being introduced in the decades that followed. The latest addition to the 747 family to date is the 747-8, initially referred to as the 747 Advanced, and launched in 2005. Compared to previous models in the family, the 747-8 features an extended fuselage, making it the longest aircraft in the family. Boeing aimed to make the double-decker 747-8 more economical, quieter, and environmentally friendly. To achieve this, they utilized the efficient General Electric GEnx-2B powerplants, mounted on wings derived from the 777 model. The 747-8 remains in production, with orders continuing to be submitted to this day.
