By my count, this makes four brand-new 747-8s currently parked at Pinal. The other three are RC604, RC524, and RC509. RC573 and RC605 will probably join them later this year.

RC548 should make its first flight later this month, then go to Marana for storage. RC549 will probably follow in her sister's footsteps (tire tracks? wake vortex?).

Quoting 747classic (Reply 2):
Observing the actual roll out dates, it seems that the assembly line is already producing airframes at the reduced rate of 1,75 .

Seen the roll-out date of the latest aircraft (L/N1483 - RC561) the assembly line is still producing at the rate of 2 aircraft /month.

According the latest info received, the reduction in assembly rate from 2 to 1,75 aircraft/month will start at L/N1492, 747-830, RC031, serial number 37836, D-ABYL, Lufthansa #10, scheduled delivery end of January 2014

This particular airframe is also the first 747-8I scheduled to be delivered with all three major upgrades* certified and active.

* Upgrades :

- GEnx-2B67/P1 engines installed ( /P1 = PIP engine)
- Tail fuel tank activated
- Software update (3.0) for the Honeywell New Generation Flight Management System (NGFMS).

L/N 1501 - 747-8xxF, RC671, unknown customer (Silk Way ?) #1, Boeing operator code : 662
