Photos of Note: 747-8 Intercontinental from every angle inside and out

EVERETT — I had an opportunity to get up close with the 747-8 production system over the past two days and see the new jumbo freighter – and Intercontinental – on the assembly line. The pictures begin with production test flight departure (not delivery flight) of an Air New Zealand 777-300ER for Auckland, lead into the Everett factory’s 40-21 and 40-22 buildings and culminates with photos from the premier, as well as the daylight roll-out of the ‘Sunrise’ livery. You’ve got 210 photos to sift through, so make sure you carve out some time after watching Movie Monday.

    Hey Jon! Thanks for posting these. I was not able to make the roll out because I was in Florida on vacation. These photos are so lage and crisp (like always). Feels like I was there.

    Thanks again bro and I hope your trip back to Seattle was a good one. We still need to get you to move here :>)

    Hope all is well.

    Peace ~
