Qantas Boeing 747-438 VH-OJR

The Boeing 747, commonly nicknamed the "Jumbo Jet", is among the most recognizable jet airliners, and is among the largest passenger airliners. First flown commercially in 1970, it held the passenger capacity record for 35 years and was the first commercial wide-body aircraft.
The four-engine 747, produced by Boeing's Commercial Airplane unit, uses a double decker configuration for part of its length. A typical three-class layout accommodates 416 passengers, while a two-class layout accommodates a maximum of 524 passengers. The hump created by the upper deck has made the 747 a highly recognizable icon of air travel.
(information from Wikipedia)
The 747 was expected to become obsolete after sales of 400 units, but it outlived many of its critics' expectations and production passed the 1,000 mark in 1993. As of the end of 2006, 1380 planes had been built with 120 more in various configurations on order. The latest incarnation of the aircraft will be the 747-8.
