Boeing’s new jumbo makes maiden flight

22 March 2011

US aerospace giant Boeing‘s newest and biggest jumbo jet, the 747-8 Intercontinental, made its first flight on Sunday near its headquarters in Seattle.

Boeing’s largest passenger plane, the 747-8 can carry 467 passengers in a three-class configuration and is designed for long-haul routes.

The plane is a longer and more fuel-efficient update of Boeing’s double-decker 747 jumbo jet, and will compete with European rival Airbus‘s A380, the world’s biggest passenger plane.
