Looking to find out who won Jeopardy! tonight? Today’s Jeopardy! results and will go up on this page late afternoon, with full stats early to late evening. They will be seen in the comments section at the bottom of this page.

The Boeing 747, one of the most iconic aircraft in history, has been in production since it was introduced (with Pan Am as its launch customer) in 1970. It was introduced to have a significantly greater capacity than a Boeing 707, and actually required Boeing to construct a new plant, as Boeing did not have a plant large enough to assemble the giant planes.

At the christening, Pat Nixon sprayed red, white, and blue water onto the aircraft.

    Interesting that Jon didn’t risk $1000 on the first DD. I bet he won’t miss an extra $400, as it wouldn’t have made a difference in the outcome.

    I guessed correctly. I flew on one in 1977 from the East Coast to the West Coast and was very fortunate that my suitcase was the very first one to pop out in the baggage claim area!
