Boeing 747 Advanced Picture?

Tue Jan 18, 2005 8:37 pm

Don't want to disturb today's A380 party and sure I'm looking forward to a good roll-out picture so that I can study Airbus' new company livery. But Boeing says not to believe in a market for very huge pax planes. However this same manufacturer announced to modernize Boeing's cash cow, the Boeing 747.

The "new" plane will be the Boeing 747 Advanced. What will be the new features, is there already a demo picture available?

Here's the A380:

Could stand a warm, complementary color (not much, really, one or two stripes) and a drop of paint on the engines, don't you think?

The 747Adv according to Süddeutsche Zeitung:

Edit: Yeah, I know ... it'S actually an older pic of the 747.
As far as I know, Boeing plan to incorporate some new technologies of the 7E7 and make the 747 some 3 m longer.
But overall, they won't "mess up" with the Jumbo, just like Airbus with the new A350.
