747-8 PIP Engine Delivered

Boeing has delivered the first 747-8 with performance-improved GEnx-2B engines to Cathay Pacific Airways. The delivery of the 747-8 Freighter comes as part of the aircraft’s ‘Performance Improvement Package’ (PIP.) The engine is the first of the package’s three improvements to enter service. The two other components, flight management computer (FMC) software upgrades and reactivation of the horizontal tank fuel system on the 747-8 Intercontinental, are expected to enter service later this month and in early 2014, respectively.
