“Weve been hearing a few people complain that Boeing is wasting fuel, by flying the 747-8 Freighter today [January 30, 2014] in the 12 pattern. We reached out to Boeing to see if the company had a response, and heres what they sent:
This is a Boeing owned airplane that is already being used in test flight. We are sponsors of the Seahawks and have partnered with them for many years for community projects. Were proud to show our support of the team and their fans across the Northwest,” quoting Taylor Soper in Geek Wire.
