I think this is the new 747-8F and when were going to Hawaii for test. One of my friend was supposed to be on this trip. Look at those new engines and they are very quite on takeoff. Great shot

Sure is a big beautiful bird. Those GEnx engines are much larger than on the previous variants. Do you have a side profile shot? Just curious to see how much further forward they protrude.

Clean and slick look, I like them naked like this.

A brand new unbranded plane. Never seen one before. Looks very nice
