FlyerTalk members were excited about the new Boeing 747-830 — also known as the 747-8i — aircraft touching down briefly in Hamburg before being delivered from Paine Field in Seattle to Lufthansa at its final destination in Frankfurt earlier this week — to the point where they kept track of its flight path.

Once the aircraft pulled into Hangar 5 in Frankfurt, a welcome celebration and launch party commenced — and FlyerTalk members oliver2002 and dreschen documented the entire experience with prose and photography.

Witness all the exuberance vicariously, as well as see photographs exclusive to FlyerTalk, read answers to questions, and click on links to news reports and videos — including one where the pilot performs a steep climb and a “wing wave” with the aircraft — here in this discussion.
