Inflight200 IF741PA0121P – 1/200 Scale Boeing 747-100(SF), N725PA, Pan Am
Inflight200 diecast model IF741PA0121P replicates in 1/200 scale the Boeing 747-100 (SF: passenger converted to freighter), named “Clipper Mandarin”, registration N725PA, Pan American World Airways (Pan Am), circa the late 1980s. Pan Am was the launch customer for the Boeing 747 and operated the B747-100 from 1970 until 1991. This aircraft was converted to an Evergreen 747 Supertanker, aerial firefighter, in 2009.
Pan American World Airways, commonly known as Pan Am, was a major American international airline. Founded on March 14, 1927, by Carl A. Spaatz, Air Corps Majors Henry H. “Hap” Arnold and John H. Jouett. The airline used the word “Clipper” in all aircraft names and call signs. In June 1947, Pan Am became the first airline to provide scheduled around-the-world flights. Declare bankrupt, it ceased operations on December 4, 1991, with Delta Air Lines purchasing profitable assets.
The Boeing 747 is an American wide-body, four-engine jet airliner, one of the most recognisable passenger aircraft with its distinctive hump atop the forward fuselage. The 747-100, the first twin-aisle airliner, flew for the first time on February 9, 1969, and entered service on January 22, 1970, with Pan Am. Manufactured in three versions; the 747-100 (passenger), the 747-100SR (short-range) and the extended range 747-100B. Designated as the C-19 in USAF service. Nasa modified one airframe to carry the Space Shuttle Orbiter. The 747 SP is based on the -100 airframe. Before manufacturing ended, 205 airframes of all versions were delivered.
Airframe construction is mainly of aluminium alloy. The fuselage is a semi-monocoque structure with an upper deck, forward of the wing containing the cockpit and passenger space. The low mounted wings and conventional tail unit are of cantilever design with sweep back. The retractable undercarriage is a tricycle type. Flight crew consists of two pilots, and the passenger cabin seats up to 400 passengers in a typical three-class layout, 496 in a two-classes, or 624 passengers in a high–density single class (747-300SR)
Powered by four Pratt & Whitney JT9D or Rolls-Royce RB211-524 or General Electric CF6 high-bypass turbofan engines, pod mounted two under each wing. The B747-100 has a cruise speed of 939 km/h (583 mph), a maximum speed of 969 km/h (602 mph), a service ceiling of 13,715 m (45,000 ft) and a range of 8,560 km (5,319 mi) depending on variant.
