These are some really cool pictures of the new Boeing 747-8F taking off from Paine Field, not landing, as I originally said. Bernardo also let me know that it was, in fact, the first takeoff of RC521, and it landed at Boeing Field a couple hours later, by way of Moses Lake.
Here’s a link to the flight path:
I absolutely love the perspective in the pictures and I also love that you get a really good feel for the size of the plane.
Boeing has received 108 orders for the Boeing 747-8, most of them for the cargo variant shown here.
