At the end of this month, United will replace the 747-400s on the Sydney routes with 777s after decades of jumbo service. I will miss seeing the behemoths thundering over our house on sunny afternoons, making their turn out over the Pacific. You could always hear the distinctive scream of four Pratt & Whitneys at full throttle and you knew it was United!
