I'm relatively surprised yet happy that the 747-8 has a cockpit that looks relatively like the -400's. And I'm even happier that the cockpit is that shade of brown, and not the dull gray of the 787.

And Bryan, this isn't the 747-8i, only the freighter version.

I like the production pictures! Nice to see it's starting to get some progress! Hopefully no delays like the 787!

It is widely known that Boeing will launch the 747-8F before the 747-8I, and that the first -8I to roll off production lines will go to Lufthansa.

Such a shame that neither FedEx nor UPS have ordered it. It would help both carriers retire some older planes (not that I'm against 3-holers :P ). It is also a shame that only Lufthansa has ordered the aircraft. Maybe different variants like a 747-8SP...?

At the moment, the only airline getting 747-8is is Lufthansa. So not only do they get the first but alllllllll of them. (For now, excluding the VIP orders)

That's what I meant: that regardless of VIP orders, LH will get the first one.

It's being looked at but I for one would be outraged to see them spend money on something like this right now, the VC-25s are FINE.

Have you got a news source?
The last I heard the US hadn't really made up its mind what it was to do, apart from the fact that it wasn't to be an Airbus aircraft.

Right, the two VC-25s are to be replace sometime. And just because they are looking at purchasing the 747-8, doesn't mean they will.

Anyway, I'm sure there are other topics in which we could discuss the VC-25's replacement. Back on topic.

There is something called window shopping, which is what the Air Force is doing. They're studying whether the 747-8 is a suitable replacement for VC-25.

Now that we've made ourselves clear, perhaps we can continue discussing Boeing's work with the 747-8?

Besides LH, if some other airline is interested in the aircraft, which airline would it be? UA would benefit from some, unless they go for 777-300ERs or 77Ls. Japanese airlines could also want some configured for domestic capacity.

It's quite all right. It's normal for a thread to stray a little from its intended topic. He didn't mean that YOU should get back on topic, but more as a reminder to not talk about VC-25. The topic is meant for Boeing's progress with the 747-8I, so don't beat yourself up and feel free to share any comments you have with us (as long as they have something to do with the topic). :wink:

Isn't the 747-8i planned for 2012?

It's a shame that NZ won't go for it.
They're getting 77W's instead. But that's a smart move, because they currently have 772's, so it would bring in some standardisation of fleet. Besides, nothing beats an extra-long stretched wide-body twin. :wink:

On the Boeing plant tour, I saw the -800F being built for Caroglux. Looks like a nice plane.
