📺 Really enjoyed this 1969 BBC documentary that delved into the coming of the Boeing 747 and its implications. I love the extrapolation that by the end of the 20th century, aeroplanes could be carrying 10,000 passengers.

It’s on iPlayer, but someone has also uploaded it to YouTube.

@adoran2 I don't want to imagine boarding a plan with 10k passengers OO.

@V_ It would be awful! It’s interesting to think about all of the other infrastructure that would have to change around the aircraft itself to make something like that happen. The decommissioning of A380s seems to point to this not being the way things are going.
