Up Close and Personal with Boeing's 747-8 at the Paris Air Show
Aol Travel had a man on the ground to check out the new 467-passenger behemoth, which Boeing is billing the 747-8 as a more efficient answer to the 747-400, its current heavyweight.
The 747-8 will have to sumo wrestle Airbus's new A380 for supremacy if it is going to become the go-to choice for long-range hauls. So far, Airbus has booked more orders, though that takes little away from Boeing's engineering achievement. Either way, airline passengers can expect to be boarding something massive sometime soon.
