Introduced in 1970, the Boeing 747 is a long–range wide-body jet airliner manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The design used to develop the 747 was based on the previously established CX-HLS project, which was subsequently not produced in spite of great study efforts from the Boeing team. The 747 was kickstarted when Pan Am revealed a requirement for a much larger airliner than the predecessing Boeing 707 in the early 1960s. Due to the size and weight of the aircraft, a wing-mounted quadjet configuration was agreed on, however it was soon established that new engines are essential in order to power the aircraft. Boeing, Pan Am and Pratt & Whitney had agreed to develop a new engine as a joint venture in 1966, which was designated the JT9D. The initial production variant was the 747-100, often referred to as the first “Jumbo Jet”, entering service in 1970 under Pan Am, and offering seats for up to 440 passengers on economy class.
