Happy Anniversary to the 747

Amazingly enough, the first test flight of the Boeing 747 was 38 years ago today. There is one problem with the linked article. At the end of the article the author implies that the 787 (currently in design and taking orders) will be the replacement of the 747. But that isn't the case. There have been many different versions of the 747 since that initial test flight, and Boeing will continue that evolution with the 747-8. I can't wait to fly on it.
