Delta Airlines Boeing 747-451 (registered N674US) taxiing at its birthplace, Paine Field, as part of its farewell tour, December 18, 2017; I flew on this aircraft and some of its sister-ships as a toddler to Korea from the US, sometimes stopping in Japan, when it flew for Northwest Airlines prior to merging with Delta. I have many of my earliest memories of aviation from these flights, and thus, many sentimental feelings about the Queen of the Skies and her retirement.
