First Flight Mania
Today was the official first flight 747-8 Freighter from the Everett Boeing factory. At 9 am we started outside in order to get good seats for the festivities which were supposed to start at 10 am. The weather in Everett being what it is decided to sock in the runway with low cloud cover and poor visibility despite the promising suck holes that were showing up this morning. Eventually mother nature relinquished the blue sky to us poor cold airplane junkies and they decided to let the thing fly.
