Boeing has released this image of the first 747-8 to wear a customer's livery, in this case for launch customer Cargolux. (All previous 747-8s have had a simple white livery applied.) This is the first aircraft to bear Cargolux's new livery, which features a red background on the tail that continues, along with a blue semi-cheatline, from the fuselage.
From our news article about the new livery:
Cargolux calls the new livery an "evolution" of its existing aircraft branding and provides "a glimpse of a new era for the company that will begin with the arrival of the aircraft in Luxembourg later this year".
Recently a fourth 747-8 aircraft joined the test fleet, and Boeing has detailed its role. And in other news, a 747-8 sustained minor damage during a taxi incident with a tug.
