First UPS 747-8F rolls out

The first UPS 747-8F has rolled out of paint. UPS is not the last freighter airline to introduce the 747-8F as Qatar Airways is expecting to announce an order for freighters.

The “paper plane” was the first UPS 747-8F.

It’s going to be sad watching 747s slowly get scrapped/stored… They’re such beautiful aircraft. In my opinion there ahould be a 747-16 because 1x2=2, 4x2=8, 8x2=16

The 747s got longer over time, how long would the “747-16” get lol.

End of an era for the Queen I guess. Glad to see that new ones are still rolling out though.

I like the look of it being simple but sophisticated

In my opinion better than the a380. Just looks better overall.

Please do not bypass the 20 character rule by adding a placeholder. If your post is under 20 characters, chances are it adds no substance to the topic and is better off not being posted.

Thanks!

Looks very nice! I wasn’t expecting this plane so early. It’s good that the 747 assembly line is still working hard!

Love the new aircraft. Wish the age of the trijets didn’t go away so soon though. They should design another “MD-11” if they’re gonna keep quad jets around

That is so gorgeous! I think UPS pretty much preserved the 747 for a few more years.

That looks amazing! But then we all have to face the hard truth that this may be one of the last 747s to roll out of the production line :(

This -74 looks incredible. I think that large cargo operations have to be one of the best jobs in aviation, just my opinion. I would love to see this in IF. Thanks for sharing!
