Behind the scenes story: Trevor Gear with “747”

I have flown in the Boeing 747 on a number of occasions and it is probably the most iconic aeroplane that there has been, with the possible exception of Concorde.

The 747 jumbo jet brought flying within reach of ‘the masses’ and as such it changed human culture, and at the same time made the world ‘smaller’.

I have always enjoyed utilising wordplay and innuendo in my songs, and there are examples of such in this track…!
