    I know that the US Air Force has invested an undisclosed amount of time into these tests of the Boeing 747-8. And I'm sure that after testing is completed they'll apply it to both Air Force One

    all it is is a heap of aluminium panels attached to a series of structural girders with various hydraulics and electronics to steer.

    God bless you, my friend, yours family, friends, neighbours, people around you and everybody You care about. AMEN…which one blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing of heavens.:-) now jesus in us is same holy, righteous as on throne. WORD of God(Jesus) forgives sin when we ask him. AMEN. we didnt recieved another jesus. we just make us infinite little, and him infinite big, as he is as word of god,AMEN. when we look on (d)evil world a battlefield is open, we look on christ.. battlefield is closed again we look on world, battlefield is open …no one can serve two masters. AMEN. but we look on jesus.AMEN. we are all brothers and sisters since Adam and Eve. God wants to see who is Kain and who is Abel. the WAY is opened, but it is our choice to move in flesh where we can not do nothing, just sin, or to move in spirit of god which is omnipräsent, omnipotent and which is a helper to change us in the image of Jesus. the call to be a child of God is highest call ever. people think they can enter heaven with sin ..or by ignoring Gods WORD which was given as a spotless Lamb born of a virgin sacrificed for oure sins to be priests and kings over gentile for oure God. HE IS comming. be prepared. Isaiah 45:23 . ‘To me every knee shall bow, every tongue shall swear allegiance.’. AMEN.

    What sets Boeing airplanes apart from all the others is the amazing redundancy (aka -backups ) designed into its systems that they are indeed the safest flying machines.  Google <Free Fall> –true story of the 1983 Air Canada 767 flight that ran out of fuel on a long flight from Montreal to Edmonton at 41,000 feet & how the Captain, a Glider instructor, handled it.  The Canadian gov't had recently converted to the Metric weight system for its airplane fleet for fuel measuring.  ISBN 0-312-02919-5

    I've flown the 747-8 in a simulator (yes I know that simulators aren't always realistic but the one I have is very realistic) and it is tremendous I have never experienced acceleration from a plane that size also it is fast, VERY FAST. I love it.

    All the effort in re-engineering a plain of 40 years old with new engines and wings and 2 connected yokes? In the same time Airbus did clean sheet designs of the A380 and A350. Re-engined the A320/1 , A330 and build an plant in the US. Does any Boeing fan have an updated order book schedule of A vs B? Please publish …
