Asian Aerospace Show in Hong Kong

A Chinese man looks at a model of Boeing 747-8 at the Asian Aerospace Show in Hong Kong Tuesday, March 8, 2011. Boeing says it has signed a deal to sell five of its new 747-8 Intercontinental passenger jets to Air China. Chicago-based Boeing and Air China, the country's flag carrier, didn't say how much the deal was worth. At list prices it would be about $1.6 billion but airlines typically get big discounts.
