The Boeing 747 is an airliner produced by Boeing, famous for its large size. First entering into service in 1968, a variety of variants were built over fifty years from 1968 to 2023. The airliners have appeared in countless media, mostly due to their popularity among many airlines over the latter half of the last century. Numerous variants of the airliner have appeared over the course of its filmography, including in Toho's tokusatsu productions.

"Destroy the Terror-Beast Missile!"

During Zone Fighter's battle against the Terror-Beast Jikiro, the metal monster used its magnetic powers to pull a passing Boeing 747-100 out of the sky and towards him, threatening the lives of all onboard. Just before the jet crashed into Jikiro, Zone Fighter shoved him out of the way and caught the 747 in mid-air, sending it to safety by throwing it like a dart.

When Godzilla appeared in Hong Kong suffering from a severe meltdown, he attacked Kai Tak Airport, where numerous Boeing 747s were present. A Cathay Pacific 747-400 in the process of taking off was forced to take evasive maneuvers to avoid hitting Godzilla. Multiple 747s also later appeared in the climactic battle at Haneda Airport, owned by several airlines including Inter Air Lines.

Sinking of Japan

Following the revelation that Japan was to be pulled beneath the surface of the ocean by tectonic activity after a period of great destruction, Yamamoto, the prime minister of Japan, chartered a Boeing 747-400 to fly to China to discuss resettlement plans with the Chinese government. However, while en-route, Mount Aso erupted, and the 747 was caught in the eruption's massive explosion, being shot out of the sky by rocks ejected from the volcano; all aboard were killed. Several other Boeing 747s were among the many airliners involved in carrying out evacuation flights for those fortunate enough to reach them.
