Pics – Lufthansa 747-8 Retro Livery

To celebrate their 60th birthday, the German flag carrier Lufthansa has painted one of its new Boeing 747-8i in 1970 retro livery. Since 45 years the “Jumbo” is an integral part and work horse of the Lufthansa long-haul fleet. Back in 1970 the carrier was the first European airline to introduce the 747. The new retro 747-8i (to become D-ABYT) is scheduled for delivery in April 2015 and will be the 18th 747-8 operated by Lufthansa.
