Boeing

Making History

By Chris Petersen

October 2015

I was proud to be part of the deliveries of three firsts.

The first was being part of the delivery of the 747-8 Freighter for our launch customer. The second was being the first to be part of the delivery of the BBJ 747-8. The third was being part of the first delivery of the 747-8 Intercontinental for our passenger airline launch customer.

These were my first experiences working for The Boeing Company -- and being part of making history. To share in something so monumental in such a short period of time was a real honor for me and the crew I worked with here at Boeing.
