Braniff Intl flew a B747-100 on it's Hawaii route and then Houston
to London. I believe the aircraft managed an incredible 15 hour per day
usage during it's years with Branniff. It was later sold to a charter
outfit I think, and now sits forlornly, stripped of engines, at an
airport in New York.

It may possibly be the highest time B747 around. Anyone know for sure?
