PAS 11: A homage to Joe Sutter

Boeing’s new 747-8 Intercontinental jet touched down here at the Paris air show this morning marking the airliner’s show debut.

Walking around the lovely orange beast on the Paris flightline I noticed these initials on the front landing gear doors – JFS.

Boeing initialed the doors in tribute to Joe, who will, so they tell me, be here at the show.

A nice touch.

For more on the 747-8′s arrival and interior views via video see Flightblogger.

Here are my pictures of the aircraft taken today.
