A beautiful bird! With over 40 years of 747 experience under Boeing's belt, this plane is winner.

Keep them off of our community during take offs --after 10pm.
Please!

Cut - Cap - & Balance these cargo loads at ORD!

Who was there first ORD or you? I love hearing people complain about airport noise who purchase or rent by the airport. It was your choice to live there!!!!!!

That's kinda like SkyHarbor, KPHX, in Phoenix. In 1969 you could line up on a 10 mile straight in from the East and for the most part be over open fields. Wall to wall houses now. In 69, I was in a piper navajo behind an Apache turbo95. At about 3 miles out it blew all to blazes for no apparent reason. Point being, at that time, Rescue had to use 4wd vehicles to get out to it. Nowadays, they would drive a city street and it would have probably taken out several houses and/or people. Chad, I am just like you. I guess people expect the Airports or railroads to just pick up and move on after they come along.

Gene, the simple fact that most cargo ops occur during the overnight hours, I suspect you will hear most activity beyond the 10pm hour. If the airport is too loud for you, I suggest moving. Downtown perhaps, I hear those "L" trains are real quiet at night... ;-)

Try living on the South Side of Memphis when the morning Fedex parade starts. It used to be from around 2am on but as they have grown over the years, it's all hours but seems to start really getting in gear from about 8pm on.

Gene, do you want to sell your house? I would love to live right next to an airport. Would save me some travel time to do my spotting:)

This just seems like the wrong site to complain about airplane noise

I don't understand people who buy a home near an airport, and then complain about......guess what?.....airplane noise.As for me, I rely on the sound to know when to run outside and watch.

@William: lol, yep, same here. I do live under the flight path for aircraft to land on runway 28 at CYUL, but not much action in the summer - more in the winter time. So yes, i run out to my back porch with my DSLR and snap away! I will never stop loving the sound. In the winter time, there are times when it is just one after the other. Love it:) Yeah, go and complain about aircraft noise elsewhere, lol:P

Well these 747-8 have a much quieter engine on them... And I have heard them in person at my airport where I work and they are very quiet... And nothing beats the noise of one of these birds or any bird for that matter taking off... For me its money in the bank:-) why don't you embrace the noise and think how far we have come with technology... Just a thought...

I don't get it.....why is everyone using the word "noise"? It's "music", ladies and gentlemen. BTW, congrats once again to Boeing in creating yet another artistic masterpiece!

Well, it's like one of them old time famous guys said once, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder" and I guess the same goes for sound.

Therein lies it's problem, 40 years old and behind the times - I have flown A380 a few times now and what a great experience to the 747 ot 777.
The A380 ICE, quietness, comfort, room, air handling and just about all aspects have Boeing beaten. A true modern bird in my opinion.

747 is still the queen of the skies. Iconic. Nice to see the -8 certified. Congrats Boeing.

I agree it is nice to see, but I can't help thinking Boeing got the strategy wrong, the new plane they should have built instead of the 787 and 747 upgrade was a hub to hub double decker.

Tom Enders, the Airbus CEO, has publicly stated on more than one occasion that the 380 program will never turn a profit over its entire lifetime, not one thin euro, such was the investment, overruns, etc. Maybe Boeing's not so dumb eh? Like Concorde, the 380 was more an act of political will (and subsidy via public funds) than an economic undertaking. Plus, although know I am being a bit reactionary (and I'm old enough not to care), I just don't trust Airbus programmers or the assurances of its management after each weird event.
