GE's Flight Test 747 visits BFI
Today GE Aviation brought in their flight test aircraft, N747GE, from Victorville, California. This particular 747-100 is the 25th 747 ever made and first flew in 1970. It flew with Pan Am for 22 years before GE acquired it to be used as a flying test bed for their new aircraft engines. Seen attached to the port side of the plane is GE's GEnx-2B, the powerplant for the Boeing 747-8. Below are some pictures I took during the last few minutes of light this afternoon.
