According to a report by Reuters, Boeing's 747 jumbo jet has bounced back from near death to mark its 50-year flying anniversary on Saturday, thanks to a cargo market boom fueled by online shopping. Boeing's 'Queen of the Skies' is now enjoying a second, slightly less glamorous life, as a cargo carrier for companies like UPS.
