Another first for us, the Cargolux 747-8! Watch as the tiny tug pushes this massive piece of machinery out of the Western U cargo terminal, then listen to the howl of the GEnx engines starting in our first ever startup footage from the cargo terminal! We were extremely lucky as we sped the ~2 miles around MIA’s runway 9 and arrived just in time at the furniture store to catch Cargolux take off!
This hits 41.73 on our Sound Scale! That’s quite a bit quieter than a lightly-loaded Triple Seven takeoff!
