eBay is more than just a site to sell aircraft parts, it is a site to rekindle fans with mementos of their favorite airlines. One specific couple reached out to us on WhaleTailSales for a special request. Pilot Gene Peterson and flight attendant Holly Rick, were aboard Flight 9771 that departed from Atlanta to its final resting place in Marana, AZ. As Queen of the Skies took its last flight, Holly and Gene planned to begin a new chapter together by getting married on this flight after landing in Marana.
"I am very sad to say goodbye to one of the most iconic airplanes that's ever been made, but we're thrilled and proud to have this lifelong memory of getting married on the last passenger 747 flight in the United States," Gene told Delta News.
Through our eBay site, Gene reached out to us with his request for a Throttle Quadrant as he was a pilot on this final flight. We were ecstatic to provide this item as a memory to cherish forever. Congratulations Gene Peterson and Holly Rick!!
