Boeing listed orders for three 747-400s on its website but did not identify the customer. The order comes on the heels of a UPS order for eight 747-400Fs and takes the year's total net of cancellations to 18. The 747 backlog now stands at 38, which will bridge production to delivery of the proposed 747 Advanced if it is launched. Cargolux has placed a provisional order for 10 747ADVs and Boeing is expected to confirm the go-ahead of the program in September.
