BOEING has revealed the first 747-8F in its complete paint scheme for launch customer Cargolux. The maiden flight is imminent. The Luxembourg-based cargo operator has a total of 13 Boeing 747-8 freighters on order with the first delivery by the end of the year. It is a sister aircraft to the new 747-8 Intercontinental, a stretched 18.3 ft development from the 747-400 providing 467 seats – 51 more than its predecessor – in a three-class configuration. The 747-8 incorporates many features from the 787 Dreamliner. Boeing has 108 orders for the 747-8 – 32 for the 747-8 Intercontinental and 76 for the 747-8 Freighter. The first 747-8 Intercontinental is scheduled to be delivered to Lufthansa in late 2011. www.boeing.com/commerical
