    EVERETT, Wash.
    Boeing Co.'s giant 747-8 freighter - the biggest plane the company has ever built - successfully completed its first flight Monday, a year later than originally planned.

    The huge plane took off from Everett's Paine Field shortly after noon and returned to Paine at 4:18 p.m. PST after an approximately 3 1/2-hour flight.

    A crowd Boeing estimated at more than 5,000 employees, customers, suppliers and other airplane fans gathered to watch the plane take to the air. The flight came just one day short of the 41st anniversary of the first flight of the original 747 model.
