Boeing..........77!????

Sun Jun 03, 2018 2:42 am

Guys I just returned from my Safeway supermarket where I picked up the holy grail of 2018 Matchbox Skybuster releases to us Skybusters collectors: their Boeing 747 in Boeing colors..Only thing is, I noted on the blister pack it says Boeing 77...its clearly a 747, even its tail says 747, the Boeing logo is prominent on the model and all so I was wondering, anyone might know why they call it the Boeing 77 instead??

Maybe they dont have the copyright permissions to call it a Boeing 747, so they almost called it one.
