A self-service laundry is a facility where clothes are washed and dried. They are known in the United Kingdom as launderettes or laundrettes, and in the United States, Canada, and Australia as laundromats (from the genericized trademark of the Westinghouse Electric Corporation) or washaterias. George Edward Pendray created the word "laundromat" for Westinghouse. More

A Blast from the Past
-In classic British Airways livery… a Boeing 747-100 G-AWNF nearing touchdown on runway 24R here at YUL… right near the threshold.. …oh man do I miss this spotting location!!
*Airplanes 101* (See Airplanes 101 Set)
Name: Boeing 747-100,
Manufacturer: Boeing (USA) .
Main Role: large capacity long range mainline jetliner
Basic design: Four engines double aisle wide body jet. Knows as a "Jumbo Jet"
Capacity: Roughly 395-500 passengers
Range: 9000km -12700km
First delivery date: 1970
Still in production in 2006: No
Easily confused for: ..nothing. It’s unique to itself but these two models can be easily confused for the 747-300 and 747-400.
Main identifying points: Look for the the "hump" or second floor at the front of the plane that houses the cockpit and upper deck cabin f the aircraft. Also the fact there are passenger seats more forward than the cockpit. No other jetliner has these features. Everything else is secondary: A very large and massive tail, 4 very large wing mounted engines. The 747-100 and 747-200 have antennae located a
at the wingtips facing backwards (seen best from under the plane on the ground while it’s in flight), 4 sets of main undercarriage landing gear. Early models of the -100 only had 3 second floor windows on each side of the upper deck. Later models have a regular set of closely positioned windows instead. Both versions has a standard short length upper deck compared to the 747-400 whose deck was lengthened significantly.
Examples of Main Operators: Today the 747-100 is pretty much out of service. They may be cargo carriers still flying it. JAL, ANA and I believe Northwest still fly the occasional 747-200. The main operators of it’s day were Pan Am, TWA, Lufthansa, BOAC, Air France, Air Canada, JAL, Qantas, Varig, United, Continental, Air India, Sabena, Swissair, SAS, Alitalia, Olympic among many.
