Boeing celebrates the birth of its biggest baby
BOEING launched the latest incarnation of its 747 in Seattle yesterday. The 747-8 Intercontinental is longer than its predecessor, the 747-400, and carries 51 more passengers (467).
And the improvements don't apparently stop there. Thanks in part to its use of technology developed in the building of the 787 Dreamliner, the 747-8 also has "16 percent better fuel economy, 16 percent less carbon emissions per passenger" and "a 30 percent smaller noise footprint " than the 747-400.
