Retiring the Taxi

Everyone is justifiably making a big deal about the Space Shuttles being retired, but very few people have given much thought to the 747s that will soon be out of a taxi job, until now. It's the first time I'd ever seen any pictures of the inside of one, especially the early one that's been in service for more than forty years. With a first class unheated cabin I can understand why it may not have been particularly popular as a crew transport. It's a shame that it's likely boneyard bound, but without the mission I guess it's not much more than an obsolete, half-stripped cargo plane.
