Farewell Delta Queen

Its queenly appearance and whale-like hump has made an impression on the world since the 1970s. The 747 became the most recognizable aircraft in the world, but its era is ending.

This weekend Delta will bid a final farewell to one of its most iconic aircraft, Ship 6309, the last Boeing 747-400 to be retired by a U.S. air carrier.

Delta’s history with the Queen of the Skies is unique in that it had acquired and retired its first fleet of 747s by 1977 only to acquire a new fleet of 747s from its merger with Northwest Airlines in 2008.
