Description: The Boeing 747 is a huge, short and long range, high capacity airliner intended primarily for intercontinental flights. This aircraft is capable of flying at Mach 0.85 carrying around 500 passengers. The first model, 747-100 ordered by Pan Am, entered service in 1970 with a take-off weight of 340-ton. Along with the -100 model, the 747-100B, -100SR for short range/high-capacity flights and -100SF freighter were introduced in 1970.

The Boeing 747-8 family of aircraft program was officially launched by Boeing on 14 November 2005. The aircraft family includes to versions the 747-8 Intercontinental passenger airplane and the 747-8 Freighter airplane also known as the 747-8F. The new aircraft will feature technologies taken from Boeing 787 Dreamliner program which is due in 2008. Among those technologies to be inserted into the 747-8 program highlights low emissions, fuel-efficient GEnx engine provided by General Electric. Besides the 747-8 will offer lower trip costs, lower noise emissions, an upgraded flight deck and an improved wing.

The 747-8 Freighter will be 5.6 m (18.3 ft) longer than the 747-400 freighter. With a total payload capacity of 140 metric tonnes (154 tons), including tare weight, the 747-8F provides 16 percent more cargo revenue volume than the 747-400F. The additional 117m3 (4,124 ft3) from the longer fuselage offers space for four additional main-deck pallets, two additional lower-hold pallets and two additional lower-hold containers. Cargo can be loaded and unloaded on the 747-8F using both the nose and side doors for maximum speed and efficiency.

According to Boeing, compared to the A380, the 747-8F will offer 20 percent lower trip costs. In addition, the 747-8F will maintain the operational flexibility of today's 747 freighters, with good profit potential at less-than-full loads. Both models, 747-8F and 747-400F, accommodate 3.1-meter (10-foot) high pallets, providing operators with maximum flexibility. The 747-8 family of aircraft development is due to a Boeing forecast which states that world aviation will need about 900 A380/B747 high capacity airplanes before 2025.

Boeing 747-8F Freighter airplane is expected to enter into service in the third quarter of 2009. The launch customers for the Freighter aircraft are Luxembourg-based CargoLux with 10 firm order aircraft plus another 10 as option and Japanese carrier Nippon Cargo Airlines which agreed on 8 firm orders and took options on six additional airplanes. CargoLux would take delivery of its first 747-8F in the third quarter of 2009 and Nippon Cargo Airlines in the fourth quarter. The 18 firm order 747-8Fs were valued at $5 billion.
