Will they, won’t they… Cargolux’s 747-8F

Today was meant to be the day that Boeing sailed over one of the many delivery hurdles littering its path with the handover of the first 747-8F to Cargolux. Except that now seems to be on a back-burner as Cargolux – under pressure from 35% shareholder Qatar Airways – has refused to accept the aircraft. So, now we wait to see who blinks first… meanwhile, in happier times, here’s a shot of the 747 in question on what is described as its final acceptence flight on 12 September.
