The Boeing 747 airliner has seen a star-studded life in the history books, being produced from 1969 until 2023, with a total of 1,574 being manufactured.

The Boeing 747 airliner has seen a star-studded life in the history books, being produced from 1969 until 2023, with a total of 1,574 being manufactured. It was designed to carry hundreds of passengers and had a range up to 10,000 miles or more at a high cruising speed near 500 kts (around 575 mph). Standard models such as the 747-400 carried up to 400 or more passengers, but range could vary from 276 in the 747SP, all the way up to some 600 or more in later models like the 747-800 depending on the selection of seating class.

This specific variant was a product of Pan-Am’s request to extend the range of the aircraft with a smaller size and passenger load. The SP variant saw its first flight in 1975 but was delivered until much later to Trans World Airlines in 1980. It served the airline until 1986, where all 3 delivered were sent to be used by American Airlines. The jet was powered by four Pratt and Whitney JT9D engines which propelled the up to 700,00 lb. airliner over more than 7,600 miles nonstop, with a cruising speed of 568 mph. It carried up to 276 passengers, a smaller amount than the 400 or so person capacity of a mainline 747 variant, like the 747-400.

Even though it only served for less than a decade, the aircraft represented the growing need for increased range and efficiency that would be required in the years to follow. This Die-Cast version features the authentic Trans World Airlines scheme, engraved panel lines with high quality pad printed details, deployed or retracted landing gear and a display stand to show the aircraft in flight. Measures 11.5”l with a 12“ wingspan at 1:200 scale.

• Features a high-quality paint scheme, etched panel lines and pad printed decals that reflect the true TWA` livery of the 1980s.
• All antennas, reflective lights, and surface details have been carefully added to the model.
• Includes deployed or retracted landing gear and a display stand to show the aircraft in flight.
• Model has the flaps and leading-edge slats deployed for display in landing configuration.
• Measures 11.5l with a 12” wingspan at 1:200 Scale.
• Highly collectible and officially licensed by Boeing.
