    Boeing Expects First 747-8F Delivery In September

    Boeing Co. (BA) plans to deliver its first 747-8 freighter to Cargolux Airlines International SA in September, mirroring the schedule for its delayed 787 Dreamliner.
    Jim Albaugh, head of the Boeing [COLOR=blue !important][COLOR=blue ! important]Commercial [COLOR=blue ! important]Airplanes[/COLOR][/COLOR][/COLOR] unit, provided the delivery update at an investor conference Thursday, with the U.S. company finally moving closer to securing revenue from the twin programs after a series of production and design delays.
    Albaugh said he expects the 787 flight-test program to be completed this weekend, with certification for the plane and the 747 freighter expected this month.

    Lufthansa's new 747-8I makes an appearance

    Lufthansa has released a bunch of pictures of it's first 747-8I as it rolls out of the paint shop at Boeing's Everett site near Seattle. Lufthansa describes it as "resplendent" in it's new livery, although, pretty as it looks, you can't help wonder what it would look like in a colour scheme that was slightly less white. Anyway, here's the pics, the second one I converted to black and white for the sheer hell of it.

    World’s longest airliner ready for take-off

    The first Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental emerged from the paint hangar at Boeing’s Everett factory near Seattle last evening resplendent in the Lufthansa livery. The fuselage is painted in the classic Lufthansa White, while the tailfin and the Lufthansa logo on the fuselage are painted in Night Blue. The Lufthansa emblem on the tailfin - an encircled crane in flight - is offset in Night Blue against a Melon Yellow background.
    After completing extensive ground tests, the aircraft will undergo initial test flights in November, and is scheduled to go into service next spring with the registration D-ABYA. Lufthansa is the launch customer for the passenger version of the Boeing 747-8 and has therefore been involved from the outset in the design of the aircraft.
    The Boeing 747-8 has been stretched by six metres compared with the Boeing 747-400. The new Jumbo measures 76.3 metres in length, making it the world’s longest passenger airliner.

    Boeing 747-8 Receives ICAO ‘Heavy’ Designation for Separation

    EVERETT, Wash., Sept. 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — The new Boeing (NYSE: BA) 747-8 will be able to operate at the same separation distances as the 747-400, according to a ruling from the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO). ICAO, a United Nations agency tasked with codifying principles and techniques for international air navigation, sent a letter to all member nations recently saying that a team of wake experts had examined flight test and simulation data, and that it determined that the 747-8 should remain in the same class as its predecessor and retain the same separation distances.
