  1. Matt,
    Thanks for the nice picture of the last 747-8 roll-out (L/N1506-RC051-KAL))
    Do you know the roll-out date of L/N1505-RC564-CAT), I missed that one .


  2. I missed that too, July 31 was the scheduled rollout date.

  3. How do you know when the planes are rolling out

  4. Matt: Love your site, watch it often. But I am always puzzle by the codes for the flights. Are they posted somewhere?
    I know a B1 is the first flight, but the rest?

  5. B1...Boeing first flight
    C1...customer first flight

    B2, 3, 4, etc or C2, 3, 4 as necessary. Once the B flights are complete the C flights start.
