First flight of the Boeing 747-8F in photos

| | Comments () | TrackBacks (0) |
Apologies for taking so long to get these up, but there were 700 photos to narrow down. Here are the final 299 from Monday's first flight. The set starts with a late afternoon departure from SFO, a night time arrival into Sea-Tac, a quick visit to BFI to shoot the twins, then on to Everett for RC501's big day. Not included in this set is our mid-day look at the 747 final assembly line, which can be found here. While RC501 was out flying into clouds, Boeing invited the media to come on-board RC521, the second 747-8F. The set will also give you a unique and up-close view of the new General Electric GEnx-2B67 engines, not to mention flight line views of ZA003, ZA004 and ZA101. Enjoy!
