The first Boeing 747-8F to be painted with a customer’s livery has emerged from the paint hangar in Everett, Wash.

The paint scheme is an updated version of the livery currently found on Cargolux freighters.

Cargolux is the launch customer for the 747-8F and has 13 of the new aircraft on order. Boeing expects to deliver the first plane to Cargolux in the fourth quarter of this year.
