FAIRBANKS — Two big Boeing jets have been drawing a lot of attention at Fairbanks International Airport.
The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports Boeing has been taking advantage of a cold snap the past week to test the new 747-8 freighter and 787 passenger plane.
Aviation fans have been taking pictures of the planes on the runway outside Alaska Aerofuel.
The 747-8 is the largest version of the jumbo jet. Boeing also is developing a passenger version it calls the Intercontinental.
The 787 is the long-awaited mid-size widebody jetliner that Boeing says will be fuel efficient.
