Unlike smaller aircraft, which in turbulence could feel like “a pin-ball machine in the cockpit,” said Boone, the 747 always sailed through smoothly.“It’s the difference between riding a tour bus or a bicycle over a bump,” he said."When you wanted it to do something it’d responded very well.” That smooth responsiveness was on full display as the pilots navigated the jet through rough weather into Paine Field, the airstrip adjacent to the Boeing factory.The flight touched down with a light-but-authoritative thud on the same runway from where it was delivered 18 years ago, in October of 1999.Despite occasionally heavy rain, a crowd of Boeing employees — most of whom worked on the 747 program — were on hand to welcome the jet at the adjacent Future of Flight Museum, where the arriving flight parked.Each of the workers was given an opportunity to sign the jet, and soon the engine cowlings and belly were covered in black and silver missives.

PHOTOS: Delta's final regular Boeing 747 passenger flight departs South Korea () Boone was among a number of those onboard with ties to Delta or Northwest Airlines, a carrier that brought more than a dozen 747s into Delta’s fleet when the carriers merged in 2008.
Boone was selected after submitting an essay about his connection to the jet, one of thousands who tried to secure a spot on Delta’s farewell flights. Boone knows the airplane well, though not from years spent flying as a passenger in coach.
