The very first Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental got a lot of great attention this Sunday, flying for the first time. However, I think some attention should go to the first 747-8I to be delivered to an airline.

The second Intercontinental (RC022) will be the first to go to an airline: Lufthansa Airlines and was caught out at Paine Field. Lufthansa’s first 747-8I came out of the paint hangar on Monday March 21st. She is painted with a gray belly and blue tail.

I am in process of finding out when the titles and logo will be put on the 747-8I. Not having them present makes me question if there might be some special livery or a new, updated livery for Lufthansa. Until I find out… let the rumors fly.

A huge thank you to Lee Karas for taking this photo and letting me share it.
