Boeing rolled out the first production 747-8 Freighter in the colours of launch customer Cargolux on June 7.
The new livery features a distinctive new red tail and a logo on the belly, and comes after Boeing delivered the last Cargolux 747-400F with a unique transition paint scheme featuring fading stripes.
“The design stands for continuity and commitment while confirming the fundamental principles that made Cargolux successful. The red, white and blue stripes symbolize the company’s roots in Luxembourg, its hub and home base,” said Ulrich Ogiermann, chief executive officer of Cargolux.
Boeing is expected to deliver the first 747-8F to Cargolux during the fourth quarter of this year. Cargolux has 13 747-8Fs on order.
