    Boeing 747-8 goes on Roller coaster/Weightless Flight (Video)

    Boeing expects 747-8 jumbo jet to finish FAA testing next week

    CHICAGO — Boeing said it expects the new 747-8, the biggest jumbo jet it has ever built, to finish required flight tests this week, putting it on schedule for certification by September.
    The plane's maiden flight was in February 2010, and five test freighters — the first variant that will enter service — have been flying around the world since then from bases in Seattle and California. Once testing is done, Boeing will submit all paperwork to the Federal Aviation Administration, said Jim Proulx, a Boeing spokesman.

    Boeing carves '747' in the skies on test flight

    Boeing painted the numbers "7-4-7" in the skies from Minnesota to California on the final test flight for its new jumbo jet.

    A map on the flight-tracking service FlightAware shows that the plane left the airport in Everett, Wash., and flew over Montana, south to California, and back north working its way across North Dakota and Minnesota, with trips as far south as New Mexico and Oklahoma, to spell out "747."
