Seattle, USA - March 20, 2011

The Boeing (NYSE: BA) 747-8 Intercontinental successfully began its flight test program today, taking off from Paine Field in Everett, Wash., before several thousand employees, customers, suppliers and community leaders.

With its stretched fuselage, the 747-8 Intercontinental is the biggest commercial airplane Boeing has ever built. It can seat 467 passengers in a 3-class configuration, 50 more than its predecessor, the 747-400.

The 747-8 Intercontinental’s first flight
marks the beginning of a flight test program that will finish in the fourth quarter.

While the 747-8 Intercontinental retains the recognizable hump at the front of the fuselage, the airplane is 18 feet (5.6 meters) longer than its predecessor. It sports a new, more aerodynamic wing, a cleaner, quieter, and more fuel-efficient engine and a host of cutting-edge technologies.

"What a great privilege to be at the controls of such a great airplane on its first flight," said Captain Mark Feuerstein, the 747-8 chief pilot.
"And what an honor to share this day with the thousands of men and women who designed and built this airplane."

"It really is a fabulous airplane."

Capt. Feuerstein
said RC001, the first Intercontinental, was in tremendous shape for a new airplane model, allowing him and fellow Boeing Test Pilot Capt. Paul Stemer to perform test conditions normally reserved for later in a flight test program.

"Doing not only the functional tests we often do on a first flight, but we also stepped out and did some important stability and control conditions that we wouldn't ordinarily do. That's basically a testament to how prepared the airplane was," said Capt. Feuerstein.
