Paine Field July 31

RC066 Air China 747-8i B-2485 begins a taxi test after returning from a B1 flight.

B-2485 at the fuel dock July 1.

B-2485 was rolled out of the factory on April 8.

WE248 Cathay Pacific 777 B-KQQ was rolled out of the 40-23 tonight.

WE451 China Eastern 777 line 1232 at the door position in the 40-25.

A FedEx 767 was moved out of the 40-32 to the fuel dock Wednesday night.

One of my favorite pictures of Keesha, she suffered a stroke on July 24 and her condition worsened for several days. We took her to the vet for the last time July 28. Thanks to all of you that visited the Husky at the airport the last seven years. She was a good dog.


  1. Nice to hear that B finally sold one (748-I) to a non-LH carrier. Right time, right route and right load, their 748-I will do just fine. -C.

  2. My condolences on your loss.

  3. Very sorry to hear about Keesha. This blog may be mostly about aircraft but it sounds like she was just as much a fixture at KPAE as any Boeing jet was. I trust her legacy will be the fond memories you have of her.
