747LCF Update?

Thu Nov 02, 2006 8:28 am

Did several searches and have come up with nothing. If I missed, just let me know.

Co-worker in Seattle said he saw the pregnant giant take off today and that it APPEARED to have some new colors. However he was driving and may have mistaken the primer green as its livery. Any pictures or updates?

They came into Paine Field today. Pilot said it won't see paint till next year. There are alot of stress/strain gages and little flags (for examining airflow) on the tail for the flight tests. All will have a different paint scheme.

Ohh yeah they also took the winglets off.

Are the winglets gone for some sort of test?
