    747-8i rollout - additional photos

    Some extra photos that didn't make the first cut.
    Enjoy:

    The view from the right hand press risers of the pre-show:


    Literally thousands of Boeing employees and their guests line the floor far as the eye can see:




    Moments after the unveiling:




    Introducing the plane:


    Employees getting up close with their newest plane:

    it's a bit strange only seeing 3 carrier's tails on the fuselage... how many are on order so far?
    it is mathematically impossible for either hummingbirds, or helicopters to fly. fortunately, neither are aware of this.

    God's grace I start training on the 747 Classic today, humbly because it is a dream fulfilled,when I see the 747-8 I realize I have new goals to shoot for.
    The beehive hummm of the JT9D and GE CF680C2,the thunder of the JT8D-17,the rumble of the PW1830 and the high ,thin whine of the PW 545A are all music to my ears!

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Manny, I can't remember if I did or not, I think I tried as was just too short. I did touch the engines and the gear though. I do have a photo or two of me in front of it - and one of them from the factory the day before inside one...but those will come later.

    God's grace I start training on the 747 Classic today
    SWEET!

    Great job jeremy, bit jealous I wasnt at this event. I do have to say I do not like these colors one bit, the gray accent just looks wrong in my eye. They shouldve painted it half LH and half KE
