Boeing announced yesterday that they have started fuselage assembly of the first 747-8 Intercontinental at their factory in Everett, WA. Even though this is not the first Boeing 747-8 built, it is the first Intercontinental that will carry passengers.

The panels are part of section 41, which houses the flight deck and top portion of the top passenger compartment. The Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental already has 33 orders and is set to be delivered in late 2011.
