747-8i flies !

March 22, 2011

The new Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental made its very first flight on Sunday from the Boeing factory home airport near Seattle. Seen here above snow-capped mountains in Washington state.

The airplane provides 16% better fuel economy, 16% less carbon emissions per passenger and generates a 30% smaller noise footprint than the 747-400.

We don't expect this new passenger airliner type at Brussels Airport very soon, but the freighter version 747-8F is expected to appear on our Brucargo apron before the end of this year.
