More good news for the Everett Boeing Plant as Boeing received U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification this morning for the new 747-8 Freighter, passing two of the final landmarks on the airplane’s journey to entry into service. The FAA granted Boeing an Amended Type Certificate (ATC) and an Amended Production Certificate for the 747-8 Freighter, while the EASA also granted the company an ATC for the airplane. Boeing plans to deliver the first 747-8 Freighter to Cargolux early next month.
