Excitement as Boeing unveils new 747

US planemaker Boeing has unveiled the latest version of its 747 jumbo jet.

The 747-8 Intercontinental will seat 467 passengers - 51 more than the current 747 - while burning less fuel, the firm says.

But Boeing has won just 33 orders for the passenger version of the plane so far - from Lufthansa and Korean Air Lines.

Boeing's Vice President, Elizabeth Lund, highlighted some of the planes new features.
