It is interesting that the last 747-400 passenger jet was delivered in April 2005 and the last 747-400 freighter in July 2008. That means that for 3.5 years, Boeing will be delivering no four-engine widebodies of any kind.

Has there ever been such a long break between two such similar aircraft?

Something doesn't sound right about that...there's at least one 747-400 sitting in Everett right now, and I know they've been flying out relatively regularly for a while.

I don't know where that came from but it isn't correct.

In 2008 Boeing delivered 14 747 freighters (-400f & -400ERF) with one going to Nippon Cargo as late as December. And they have already delivered 5 in 2009.

Cargolux got their last 747-400F in July 2008 and will get the first 747-8F. Is that the long gap you're thinking of?

The most recent -400 freighter delivery was B-LIF, three weeks ago, to Cathay Pacific Cargo - the final P&W powered 747. One more -400F to deliver soon - to NCA for lease to CargoB. Two more -400ERFs for LoadAir, one airworthy, one nearing completion whose delivery will be delayed to September 2009 according to a news story I saw quoting a Boeing source.

But back on topic - in a blog post that was made after the webcast that is the subject of this thread, Randy Tinseth blogs that while 747-8F is still on track for delivery in 3Q 2010, the 747-8i delivery target has been "adjusted" to 4Q 2011.
