"Boeing is currently developing two new airplanes. The all-new 787 Dreamliner tends to get the most attention because it would be the world's first mostly composite commercial plane.
But the company's new version of its jumbo jet, the 747-8, is also steadily heading toward first flight. Boeing has said that first flight would be in the fourth quarter of this year.
First flight of the 787 has been delayed indefinitely -- the world awaits Boeing's new time line.
So which will fly first, the 787 or the 747-8 Freighter?"
Right now, getting either one of the them flying will be an achievement in itself
