Boeing will reportedly stop making 747 Jumbo Jets for good after it completes the last of the 16 aircraft currently on order now.
The final 747 is now expected to roll off the line in the next two years or so, after which time the type will have been in production for more than five decades.
The impacts that the COVID-19 pandemic has had across the air travel and aviation industries have only further depressed an already declining market for the iconic plane, which is lovingly nicknamed the "Queen of the Skies."
Bloomberg was first to report the impending closure of the 747 production line on July 2, 2020.
