CBS Sunday also did a piece on the 747 ending it's run for United Airlines.

We should all be so lucky to have a design as iconic as the 747.

It's fun to see the evolution! They've really kept the overall side profile detailing consistent throughout the years, although the wheelbase seems to have changed a lot.

This is great!
I would love to see a very slow and intelligent sci fi movie that deals with some of the shown themes and is equally bombastic in it's visuals.

seriously agree. I think I've watched this a dozen times. It deserves to be expanded.

Check out this quick Vox video by Phil Edwards on the Lincoln Monument and how it almost wasn't built. This is a great analogy to what many of us in design encounter at times when guiding stakeholders to a solution. Lisa Benton-Short lists in the video lack of vision, fiscal conservatism, and lack of will as "the perfect storm of nothing happens". Designers in the process can help by showing people the vision in such a compelling way that it not only explains, it overcomes the lack of will. It is also incumbent upon us to help find the most financially responsible solution, or to help show how this solution might have outsized returns.
