華航🌸China Airlines B747 空中女王 后翼起飛 Farewell Party

2021年3月20日正逢華航最後四架747–400客機光榮退役前的最後一趟飛行。

從早上7:47開始,歷時十個小時的「空中女王 后翼起飛」告別活動在全機滿載375名旅客,外加機組人員、工作人員及在觀景台苦等的航空迷的見證下,飛行至日本靜岡縣富士山上空,完美的採偽出國方式,起飛但不降落,與日本神山-富士山做最後一次也最具紀念價值的會面。

雖然無法降落、富士山也未能完整露臉見客,但仍不減整趟旅程的精彩與豐富度。

此篇文章按照時間軸以流水帳的形式,完整記錄這十小時,各位與女王共同度過的最後美好時光。

March 20th 2021 marks China Airlines Boeing 747–400’s last flight before official resignment.

After serving for over twenty years, registration no. B-18215 not only is the very last -400 Boeing ever built but also once brings the president to visit foreign countries.

The Queen of the Sky Farewell Party lasted for ten hours starting from 7:47 a.m., including a six-hour fly-to-nowhere trip, taking solid booked 375 pax and cabin crew to pay great tributes to Mt. Fuji, also known as Queen in Japan.

Although Mt. Fuji couldn’t be seen in the full picture, not to mention it was only a fly to nowhere, the whole farewell party still fulled of exciting activities, leaving all the pax and staff precious unforgettable memories.

This article keeps a detailed record of the whole events in chronological order, presenting the very last chance to pay tribute to our Queen of the Sky.

這邊是一個很有意義的小活動,發給大家一人一張富士山紀念卡及一張明信片(小丸子的),讓大家自行寫下自己的地址與想說的話,等靜岡县駐台辦事處人員回日本時,會再帶回靜岡寄到台灣給我們!真的非常的用心。另外,草莓也是靜岡縣特產之一,所以也特地發放草莓杯子蛋糕。

This is a quite meaningful activity: each of us got two postcards, Mt. Fuji and Chibi Maruko, and were asked to write our own address and whatever we like on the back of the latter. After the Shizuoka tourist bureau staff get back to Japan, they’re gonna send out those from there to Taiwan as a commemorative gift.
