Here is a quick video showing how Boeing kept the 747-8 Intercontinental hidden and then showed it off during their unveiling event inside the Boeing factory today. They had music playing and people on stage. It was a surprise when the curtains fell quickly and suddenly to show the orange liveried airplane. After the unveiling, the 10,000 employees, retirees and guests were able to get up close and personal to the airplane. Seeing parents who worked on the plane show it off to their children was very surreal. I just felt extremely lucky to have been able to join on this special event.
