Sexy lines on that girl.

I'll stick to bloomberg or the youtube video for free instead of paying to stand and watch it live.

Is the 747-8 named the 747-8 because the -8 in 747-8 sounds like freight?

It's hard to believe that a Boeing employee has a child named "eight."

The "-8" is used to pay homage to the similarities b/t the 787 and the 747-8 from a technology standpoint. What specific tech is the same? Don't know off the top of my head so I'd have to look it up, and I can't be bothered - too busy reading internet forums.
