Extract:

SEATTLE, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- The Boeing Company has launched the second member of its Longer-Range 747-400 family -- the Longer-Range 747-400 Freighter. The initial customer for the airplane is International Lease Finance Corporation (ILFC), which today announced it has ordered five of the Longer-Range 747-400 Freighters.

The estimated value of the order is $1 billion at list prices. The order was previously identified on the Boeing Web, attributed to an unidentified customer.
The first airplane will be delivered to ILFC in October 2002. The Longer-Range 747-400 passenger program was launched with Qantas Airways in November 2000.

One thing about Steve Udvar-Hazy is that he never lacked balls. Good for him.

So thats the 5 that we have all been waiting for? While I am glad, I was really hoping for a new operator, in the pax model.

I would assume that Air France is the destined home for these birds. Congradulations to Boeing and the 747 for a new member of the "family".

Guys, this is just the 747 LR, it's not the 747X, Qantas have already ordered a few pax versions, along with the A380 order.
