The registration N747EX was accidentally painted on this second 747-8F (RC521) and corrected to N5017Q several days later. The first 747-8F (RC501), the real N747EX, is parked to its left. [Canon EOS 400D Canon EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM]

This reminds me of the photo with the 3 Pan AM 747 at Everett more than 40 years ago! Great to realize that the queen of the skies will be around for decades to come!

Well, I guess it's so long to those beautiful triple-slotted flaps. They will be missed.

Nice.
Btw, nothing really new, the 747 is now 40 years old. The queen of the sky is now the A380.

The 3rd 747-8 is nearly ready as well.

Just because the bloated A380 is bigger, doesn't make it the queen of anything. :) As for the plane in this pic, you have to remember that this is Freighter version. It has a 13 ft. 4 inch plug forward of the wings. The passenger version of the 747-8 has this plug forward of that, making the upper deck even longer than a -400! Both 747-8 models also have a 5 foot plug aft of the wings making this one long bird!

Nice shot Dave. I'm glad someone had an opportunity with some sunshine to take a picture of the new Queen of the skies. RC501 has been parked there for over a month now. Those 777 style flaps look near vertical on the inboard aft section. Awesome! Can't wait to hear GEnX's in surround sound going down the runway.

We may have the A380 but still, nothing will beat the 747, the Queen of the Sky.

This is the result of the original no-compromise engineering investment established during the first 747 programme. Thanks to the foundation, you can be sure this plane will perform and still yield on the initial investment made over 40 years ago. Good job.

Didn't know the 800 was out! what happened to the 5/6/700's?
I'll always love the 747, they look so nice!

Too bad I thought they also wanted to extent the upper deck! A rare picture though! Thx for sharing!

On the "Intercontinental", the passenger version of this plane, the upper deck will in fact be stretched, just like on the -300 & -400 for pax, only a little longer. These then are obviously the Freighter prototypes.

Are you serious!? They painted the WRONG number? :-)) Laughing out loud. It's not like they have too many to mix them up. :-)
