The Boeing 747 is still one of the most famous commercial aircraft in the world due to the overwhelming number of flights undertaken by the aircraft and its surprisingly solid safety record. The 747 is so highly regarded as an aircraft that the President George H.W. Bush requested a 747-200B as his personal aircraft (Air Force One) (“Air Force One,” 2013). President Obama is looking to order either a prototype 747-800 or 787 Dreamliner as the new Air Force One before he leaves office (Bazinet, 2013).
