Boeing’s new 747-8 widebody will need to undergo trials to determine aircraft separation for wake turbulence avoidance.

Wake vortex tests are “clearly something we’re going to have to do” for the 747-8, the program’s VP marketing Randy Tinseth confirmed today at a Paris air show briefing.



Was only a matter of time really - and the need to recertify the new plane - there getting ahead of this one early.
