- ― Official description
The 747 200B is a large aircraft featured in Ace Combat: Joint Assault. In the game's plot, the aircraft makes a major appearance in the mission "Grand Flight", in which Antares One is forced to pilot Andre Olivieri's personal unit through a Valahia-controlled mountain region in Turkey. It is exclusive to this mission, and cannot be selected or flown outside it.
The 747 is the 45th selectable aircraft of the game. Because of its non-military nature, it is classified under the "Airliner" category, and is the only plane of its type. As a civilian aircraft, it cannot use any weapons to protect itself, and is quite vulnerable to enemy attacks because of its size. Its bulk provides just enough protection for its occupants against gunfire, and is relatively stable. Because they are not designed for speed, its engines can barely surpass the 600km/h limit.

- C03: Grayish white body.
- C04: Off-white with golden wing trim and underside.

- The 747-200B is the first true player-controllable aircraft in Ace Combat history to lack any kind of on-board weaponry, as well as the largest and the only non-military aircraft manned by a player character.
- If the CWCheat third party device is enabled when playing through Grand Flight, upon reaching the 2nd phase of the mission the 747 will be able to fire Long-range Shock Wave Missiles.
