Yesterday marked yet another dramatic event in aviation history as the new Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental took flight for the first time.
I guess the A380 has some stiff competition once this comes on stream.
Now that is a beautiful sight!
That looks fantastic! I remember reading about this variant and was eager to watch its first takeoff. Glad to see it did so and good to see the 747 is alive and becoming better.
Cool, but also a bit scary. The old saying: the bigger they are the harder they fall. Still I guess it has to be as safe or safer then whats out there. With so many seats available, and being more efficient does that means cheaper fights though.
True. The A380 has already seen instances of bad luck but the B777 has been in service for over 10 years and for a huge plane, it hasnt had anything major other than that fuel line ice up problem BA experienced.
