The Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental is one step closer to taking flight. The 747-8I has 133 miles of wires and a heck of a lot of power systems.Although the aircraft might look similar to the Boeing 747-400, Bernard Choi on the video reminds us that, “beneath the familiarÂ exterior lies a suite of new technology, all of which need power to function. For example, theÂ Intercontinental features a more powerful flight management computer, the option of dualÂ electronic flight bags, and a new wing with control services that are fly-by-wire, all features that make it easier to pilot the Â airplane. At the same time, a new cabin services system, including LED lights, will make the 747-8 Intercontinental a more comfortable space for passengers.”
