The Boeing 747 Intercontinental, aka Boeing 747-8, “will be capable of carrying up to 467 passengers in a 3-class configuration over 8,000 nmi (15,000 km) at Mach 0.855.” Expect to see this jumbo jet take flight in 2011. Click here for first picture in gallery.

It will be a lot quieter than the current 747, and it will have the same “new curved, upswept architecture” to make it airier and give passengers more room for personal belongings.
