Cathay Pacific unveiled its new 747-8 Freighter today as part of a ceremony marking the completions of its updated cargo terminal at Hong Kong International Airport.

The new 747-8 was shown off in special livery marking it as the ‘Hong Kong Trader’, in recognition of the city’s place as a hub of international commerce.
