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. Reuters reports that in 2018, UPS ordered 14 more 747-8 freighters, a lifeline that helped ease doubts regarding the future of the jumbo-jet, which looks ready to outlive its European competitor, the Airbus A380.
