Boeing has unveiled the first pictures of the modified 747-400 Large Cargo Freighter (LCF) to be used to transport 787 sections (pictured below).
The aircraft is officially dubbed the DreamLifter, in reference to the 787's Dreamliner monicker.
The aircraft are being modified by Evergreen Aviation Technologies in Taiwan. The first aircraft made its first flight in September and is undergoing flight testing and the second LCF will arrive in Seattle early next year, painted and ready to participate in the ongoing flight test programme.
