11/7/17: Can't believe it's already been a year since I booked a last-minute trip to SFO to watch and photograph a very historic, yet very sad, moment in Aviation! United flight UA747 to HNL departed one last time, with pax onboard, before she retired from the fleet. Flying 6 hours nonstop from MCO-SFO on a crowded 737, just to attend the Gate Party and spot this iconic airliner depart one last time with the airline, was totally worth the 4am showtime at MCO for a 6am departure, and cramped legroom for a flight of such long duration in Economy!

I’ve repositioned and refined the geometry of the logo which covers more than half the tail fin to get it looking correct; both from a design perspective (to faithfully represent the logos actual shape) and from a perspective perspective (how it’s supposed to look at the angle we’re seeing it from). 😂
This has been by far the most difficult part of the painting (partly because I’m not a robot🤖), but it was worth taking the extra time to get it right - such is the nature of epic paintings (they’re only as epic as the amount of work you put into them). ✈️🎨

Ok so now that the CX 350 is completed, it’s time to complete the UA 744 once and for all!
Just a few finishing touches to go now. Let’s get it done! 💪🏻
Here I’m making some major adjustments to the southern headland to better accomodate the famous Golden Gate Bridge! 🌁 ✈️🎨

Throwback to November 2007 onboard UA897 Washington-Beijing just before pushback. Only 9 of us were seated in the large 73 seat Business Class cabin that day. The Upper Deck was "closed" due to the ridiculously low load, and I'm sure was used as the crew rest facility for the long flight across the North Pole. Miss these 744s already... had many decent rides on them with United.
