AvGeeks are creative people. When we announced that we were inviting TPG readers to United's exclusive Family Day in San Francisco to see two of the carrier's 747s up close and personal, you were quick to put together farewell letters to the Queen of the Skies for a chance to win.

Ultimately, we picked 50 of our favorite responses, meaning 50 readers plus one guest each will come with us to this Sunday's event at SFO. But we wanted to highlight some of our favorite submissions of AvGeeks expressing why the 747 means so much to them. Here are seven of our favorite missives to the Queen, in no particular order:

1. A Personal Journey

2. An Acrostic Poem

3. A Farewell Boarding Pass

4. A Video Goodbye

5. A Taylor Swift Rendition

6. An Original Being Returned

7. A Goodbye Poem

Keep an eye out on Sunday for more content from SFO and United's 747 event!
