New Boeing 747-8F cargo jet Print

The 747-8F freighter stopped by Iqaluit on March 14, 2011 for an overnight cold weather test.

Chris Harbord got some great video of the runway 34 takeoff on a nice sunny, -27 degree celcius afternoon, March 15th.

The Iqaluit airport attracts cold weather testing from a variety of aviation companies. These tests have brought some interesting aircraft to our town, including the Airbus A380, Eurocopter and more.
