747: Creating the World's First Jumbo Jet and Other Adventures from a Life in Aviation
by Joe Sutter, Jay Spenser
747 is the thrilling story behind "the Queen of the Skies"—the Boeing 747—as told by Joe Sutter, one of the most celebrated engineers of the twentieth century, who spearheaded its design and construction. Sutter's vivid narrative takes us back to a time when American technology was cutting-edge and jet travel was still glamorous and new. With wit and warmth, he gives an insider's sense of the larger than life-size personalities—and the tensions—in the aeronautical world. 

Joe Sutter led the team of engineers that created the Boeing 747. He served on the Presidential Commission to investigate the Challenger explosion with Neil Armstrong, Sally Ride, and Richard Feynman. Now in his eighties, he still serves as a consultant to Boeing. He lives in Seattle.

Boeing 747-400 (AirlinerTech Series, Vol. 10)
by Robert F. Dorr
Book Description The Boeing 747-400 is the transformed version of the airliner that changed the world. In many ways, it is a new aircraft rather than a development of the widebody "jumbo jet" that brought air travel to the everyday citizen. With an outer shell that dates to the mid-1980s and an interior that reflects a digital revolution and a new century, the 747-400 is a complex and smoothly functioning thing of beauty. Many regard the 747-400 as the most majestic flying machine to grace the skies. 

This volume includes extensive technical information on the 747-400, including construction photos, details, and illustrations from tech manuals. It also includes information on 747-400 variants for the cargo industry and military, including the Air Force's YAL-A1, a platform for a prototype antiballistic-missile laser. Airlines that use the 400 are profiled, and an appendix includes a roster of all 591 400s built, listing type, line number, registration, and operator.
