Join together

You might remember that before I moved into my current role, I spent a lot of time on the 747 program, including as vice president of Marketing for the 747-8. So you’ll understand when I say how thrilled I was to learn that the first 747-8 Intercontinental passenger jet was loaded into final body join last week.

That means we have completed the airplane’s main structural build and joined all of the major fuselage sections together. Following final body join, the airplane will move into final assembly before leaving the factory in the first quarter of 2011

I’d like to invite you to watch the video below and check out our team as we join together the next queen of the skies.
