Korean Air Cargo 777F arrives from PDX

Korean Air Cargo 777F

We first saw Korean Air Cargo’s first 777F in the factory green coating, but it is now painted and nearly ready for delivery. HL8251 (msn: 37639) is seen here returning from the paint shop at Portland (PDX) on a windy, rainy, raw Saturday morning, reversers open and spoilers about to retract.

Since 2007, some 777s have been painted at Boeing’s facilities in Portland due to the pace of production (of all lines) in Everett.
