I told a friend of mine back in the '80s that the upper deck of the 747 would probably one day extend all the way back to the empennage. It looks like that may be happening. Perhaps it will make a very beautiful competitor to the Airbus A380.

Love the whalejet and Airbus deserves kudos for a splendid accomplishment... but the 747 remains the reigning monarch of the sky. Look at the lines on that baby. Hope more airlines are inspired to pick up orders for these. Great capture Joe.

Long live the 747!It must be like it is when you extend the hump to the end its not a 747 anymore!Better wish that boeing finds a A380 competitor.

If the upper deck is extended all the way back to the empennage then she will lose her iconic looks and would become a whole new aircraft.

Even in this plainest of livery, it looks every bit regal. And an historic moment beautifully captured by a "royal photographer".

Although I'm German and took part in the A380 hype I'll always prefer the Queen of the skies!
Thank you Boeing and Lufthansa! :o)

The 747 is one of the most impressive aircraft that has ever been built.
However it has been designed in the 60s, now it is outdated and the 747-8 does not catch up with this century's airliners.

Perspective Distortion! The thumbnail looks as though the dreamlifter is a 737, and the 747-8 is much bigger sitting behind. (it doesn't look airborne).

The design of the plane looks vintage. Wait a minute. The design is still from the sixties. 50 years ago.

Who cares if it was designed in the 1960s. The mighty Boeing 747 has been continuously updated and adapted to suit all kinds of needs and requirements, even in this day and age. Still THE Queen of the Skies.

As for the A380, it's big, it's spacious, but nothing special. No offense. :)

The letters through the middle of the picture are greatly distracting, in what should be a great photo.

I don't understand why Lufthansa is buying BOTH B747-8 and A380. Why not buy just one type and have the fleet of similar aircraft?
