Delta operated a fleet of five 372 seat Boeing 747s (fleet numbers 101-105) in service from 1970 to 1977. Configured with 58 First class seats and 304 Tourist seats, N9896 inaugurated 747 service on October 25, 1970 on the Atlanta-Dallas (Love Field)-Los Angeles route. Other routes included Chicago-Miami, Chicago-Atlanta, Los Angeles-Atlanta, Detroit-Atlanta, Jacksonville-Atlanta and Detroit-Miami. Delta also operated an interchange with Pan Am using Delta's 747's on Atlanta-London Heathrow and Atlanta-Frankfurt. Can you believe Delta flew to London Heathrow and with 747's!  It's true as shown in some of the pictures below.

Captured a recent 747-400 trip on Virgin Atlantic from Orlando to Belfast. It's getting harder to fly on 747's and now they are all gone from US carriers. Checkout the trip and landing at a small airport with only one boarding bridge and ramp deplanning due to large aircraft.
Rare views from a Virgin Atlantic 747 Landing at Orlando International Airport. Scenes from both sides of the aircraft synchronized and edited together for a unique view of landing.
Delta's first and original 747-132
 is still around and you can visit it!
