Celebrate this iconic aircraft’s legacy with limited-edition 747 merchandise

The year was 1979, and fashion, art, film and culture were flourishing in Hong Kong. The city was growing and changing, fuelled in part by the energy of international travellers excited to see more of this remarkable place. It would also be a year to remember, as the iconic Boeing 747 joined Cathay Pacific’s passenger fleet. As the jumbo jet take to take to the skies, it immediately captured hearts and minds. Carrying greater numbers of people further than any other aircraft of its era, the “Queen of the Skies” catapulted Cathay Pacific from a regional carrier into a global airline. Almost overnight, the 747 became a living legend and cemented Hong Kong as an international aviation hub.
  The “B-HOP” (first registered as VR-HOP) was the first -400 variant of the 747 family to join the Cathay Pacific fleet in 1989. She served the airline for 25 years, logging 52,986,150 miles – that's enough to get to the moon and back 111 times! The aircraft also operated one of the very last commercial flights out of Kai Tak Airport in July 1998. To keep this iconic aircraft’s legacy alive, we’ve designed an exclusive range of retro and vintage-inspired limited-edition 747 merchandise. Each is created to echo a golden era of aviation and inspire future generations of international travellers.
