Lufthansa has officially taken delivery of the first Boeing 747-8i passenger aircraft today, marking another milestone in the aviation industry. The plane will remain in Washington until May 1, at which time there will be a celebratory event as it departs to Frankfurt, with an arrival party in Germany on May 2. Look for the aircraft to enter commercial service shortly thereafter.
