CargoLux Boeing 747-8F taking off for a test flight at Paine Field (N5573S)

CargoLux Boeing 747-8F taking off for a test flight at Paine Field (N5573S)

Last Tuesday a new Cargolux Boeing 747-8 took off from Paine Field to continue its test flights and unfortunately I wasn’t able to make it. Luckily two awesome guys from Portland, OR,  Alex and Russell, were able to get up to Everett, WA in time to watch her fly. Russell got two amazing photos (see larger one of the one above and also a second one) and Alex was able to get a video of the Boeing 747-8 taking off.

Today, I got word from Jon Ostrower (aka FlightBlogger) that a Boeing 747-8 Freighter with a  Korean Air Cargo livery should be outside at Paine Field.

So I headed up to Paine Field to take a look and sure enough, it was there!

I was just up there on Saturday taking a look at the Boeing 787 ZA005 and the Cargolux Boeing 747-8, but it was awesome seeing the Cargolux next to the Korean Cargo plane (dang UPS getting in between them).

I didn’t have my normal (and better) camera with me, so didn’t get zoomed in as I wanted, but better than nothing!

More media:
* LIVE video I took on iPhone while there (still testing this service)
* 12 other photos of the Korean Air Cargo Boeing 747-8
* Is it just me or does the Korean Air logo look a lot like Pepsi’s new logo?

Thank you Temo for letting me use your camera last minute!

Saturday was the first sunny day in the Seattle area in a long time. The whole thing about Seattle always being rainy is normally not all true…however the past week and a half it sure has felt like it.

On Saturday Liz Matzelle (@ImperfectSense) was able to get a flight above Paine Field (KPAE) and she took some pretty sweet photos. Can you identify the planes in all her photos?

I recently took a tour on the ground of KPAE, but you can’t beat being in the sky.

Check out Liz’s 25 other amazing photos of KPAE from the sky!
