THEY WOULD PILOT THE FIRST BOEING 747 TEST FLIGHT NOW THAT THEY’D —
JDEHBTNDEOLA = LANDED THE JOB
Good Tuesday morning everyone! The first three clue words came instantly today, with DOLLAR coming into view on second glance. Moving along to the cartoon, I read the sentence and dialogue and attempted a blind solve but wasn’t able to figure it out. Writing out the letters, I noticed “J” was first in the layout and JOB came to mind instantly. THE and AND were both available for the other 3-letter word, but THE seemed like the logical choice. LANDED was a quick solve with the remaining letters for the finish and another fun Jumble puzzle was complete!
Jeff’s cartoon featured three men, and two of them appeared to be pilots. If you’re new to the game, you probably would have just finished the puzzle and moved on to the crossword or another part of the newspaper. Diehard fans of the game know that Mr. Knurek does quite a bit of research for his pieces and this one is a great example. The two pilots are actually named Jack Wadell and Brien Wygle, and there first flight in the prototype Boeing 747-121 took off from Paine Field in Everett, Washington on February 9, 1969 at 11:34 am. During the test flight, they experienced minor problems with the wing flaps and decided to cut the flight short. The plane was named City of Everett after the factory where it was built and is on display at the Museum of Flight in Seattle, Washington.
