    Still a few weeks away...there will be a live webcast of the event. I love this stuff...thought others might want to know in case they want to watch it as well.

    So is the dreamliner that's like 3 years over due or is this a refurbished 747?

    We out near Seattle over Christmas and drove by the Boeing plant. I'm pretty sure they had one sitting outside. From a distance it looked pretty impressive.

    Sorry- won't link to the specific image, but the interior staircase looks nice.

    This is a new version of the 747. Stretched fuselage, new wing, and new engines.

    This is one of my favorite pictures of it. It's the freighter version (747-8F), so the "hump" isn't as long, but really shows just how big this thing is. The planes behind it are the stretched version of the 737 (737-800's).
