During a quick glance at the exhibition halls under construction (still–as is the norm for airshows) for this week’s Asian Aerospace show, two models quickly caught my attention.
First, Asian Aerospace marks the premiere of a large-scale model of the Boeing 747-8 Intercontinental in the Sunrise livery.
Second is a model of the Boeing 747-400 Boeing Converted Freighter (BCF) sporting a silver paint coat with 777-300ER-style wavy lines in 747-8F blue colours. The model’s showing at cargo-heavy Hong Kong & Asian Aerospace (Turkish Airlines and China Southern have stands, but only for their cargo services) is appropriate, especially given last week’s retirement of passenger 747-400 models from JAL.
Apologies for the poor picture quality. Once we’re back on site tomorrow we’ll get you proper pics.
