N1352B was the first Boeing 747 ever built. It was used by Boeing as a test aircraft, and as a research platform for ongoing system developments with the 747 series.

In the above photo, the 747 is being demonstrated as a potential refueling tanker. The USAF passed on the proposed KC-33A. Only four were ever sold, all to the same foreign government.

N1352B was later re-registered as N7470, before being retired to the Boeing Museum of Flight, also the home of the only remaining M-21.
