The Good and Bad News of the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental Unveil on Sunday

This Sunday Boeing will unveil their newest and largest plane; the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental. I have been asked by quite a few fans if the public will be able to see the airplane. The bad news is no, the whole unveiling will be done inside, meaning you can’t catch a glimpse from the Future of Flight or their parking lot — bummer.

However, the good news is Boeing will be doing a live feed of the event at Boeing’s NewAirplane.com site. The live webcast will start at 11am PST on Sunday the 13th. Boeing will be giving information to the media starting Saturday morning, so you will be able to catch a lot more via Twitter. You can follow me (@AirlineReporter), @FlightBlogger and/or the hashtag #7478FT.

I have been trying to find out what livery the 747-8I will have, but Boeing isn’t talking. Guess we will all have to find out on Sunday. I am hoping it is the full Boeing livery, but I think even the light livery should look slick. Who knows, maybe they will go a little crazy and it will be in Lufthansa livery. Either way, I can’t wait.
