CargoLux Boeing 747-8F taking off for a test flight at Paine Field (N5573S)

Last Tuesday a new Cargolux Boeing 747-8 took off from Paine Field to continue its test flights and unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it. Luckily two awesome guys from Portland, OR,  Alex and Russell, were able to get up to Everett, WA in time to watch her fly. Russell got two amazing photos (see larger one of the one above and also a second one) and Alex was able to get a video of the Boeing 747-8 taking off.

I would like to see many airlines place order B747-8. With capacity, it will pay off for long run.

I look forward to appearing in Budapest loading.
