Boeing Marks Milestone 747-8 Delivery

Boeing says it has delivered its 50th 747-8, with Deutsche Lufthansa being the recipient airline. It was also the launch customer of the passenger version, and Lufthansa took delivery of the milestone aircraft almost one year after the first revenue flight of the 747-8 Intercontinental. The new aircraft is Lufthansa’s seventh 747-8 and its 82nd 747. “This delivery is not only an important milestone for the 747-8 programme, but it sets the stage for our future,” said Eric Lindblad, VP and GM for the 747 programme. “We will be building and delivering the 747-8 for decades to come.”
