Scenes from Boeing 747-8 production line.

Boeing unveiled its new version of the 747 jumbo jet this weekend, the 747-8 Intercontinental. The lengthened plane is now the longest passenger jet in the world. I was able to visit the production line last week for USA Today story. Below are some of the images from the factory floor. -Rob
