The Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental is one beautiful airplane. Boeing recently tweeted a video of the first 747-8I RC001 being moved to her final assembly position and I just had to share. The 747-8I is the biggest commercial airliner that Boeing has ever made and it might turn out to be my favorite.

Today Starts TSA’s Secure Flight – Are You Ready?

I liked it. You’d think moving a large aircraft 500 feet wouldn’t be that exciting. But, the next time it moves will be out the door!

This will be one beautiful aircraft, built on a proven design. Give me it over the A380 any day.

Can’t wait till first flight. Any idea when that will be?
