ATW - Boeing has rolled out its first 747-8 Intercontinental from its paint facility in Everett, Washington state, for launch customer Lufthansa (LH).

 

After completing ground tests, the aircraft will begin initial test flights in November. It is scheduled to go into service next spring with the registration D-ABYA, LH said in a statement.

 

The 747-8I is 6 m. longer than the 747-400 and, at 76.3 m., is the world’s longest passenger jet. LH said it has ordered 20 747-8s, which are due for delivery from the beginning of 2012 through mid-2015; it also has options for a further 20 aircraft.
