On the first stop of Delta's farewell tour, employees at the airline's hub in Detroit celebrated and shared their favorite memories about flying with the Queen of Skies.
"The 747 is special because there will be nothing, probably ever, quite like it. It has flown all over the world so all of us have such [wonderful] stories about the places we've been to and the experiences we've had on this airplane," said Margaret Palmer a Detroit based Flight Attendant.
The tour was scheduled to make stops in Detroit, Seattle, Atlanta and Minneapolis for hangar parties, where Delta people can mingle and reminisce on the end of an area for the towering 747.
