  1. The Boeing customer code is still valid for this aircraft.
    So the correct type is B747-8B5F.

    After L/N 1533, starting with L/N 1534 the Boeing customer code is not listed anymore at the 747 FAA Type certificate, only the subtypes 747-8F or -8 are indicated.

    1. We have update entries for HL7639 and updated the Blog to reflect the changes Boeing has made in regards to no longer using Customer codes as follows:
