748 will be leaving PAE today at 21:00 UTC.
I hear the roll-in ceremony is taking place tomorrow at Frankfurt airport.

Airplane is scheduled to land at 9:30am local time.
Flight number is DLH 748

Maybe some of you have received tickets?
If you are there please get us some pictures.

Hi;

another nice write up of the new 747 on its way to FRA. I will defiantly be trying this one out on the way to LA this summer!

As you can see from the smoke, she actually did land at HAM - for 1 or 2 seconds

They did a touch and go in Hamburg! How wonderful!

This captain must be a King of the Skies!

I love how he did the wing wave when they took off from PAE!
Steep climb and wing wave! A true class act!

A double whammy inaugural FRA-IAD-FRA on the new Lady Bee
