What not to do in Monaco: The top five tourist mistakes

If you’re heading to Monaco, make sure that you don’t make these common tourist mistakes.

Do NOT arrive by cruise ship

Boeing paints 747-8 Freighter in Seahawks colors

In celebration of the Seattle Seahawks making the Super Bowl, Boeing painted one of its 747-8 Freighter in team colors.

The airplane was painted with a giant 12 on the tail, a nod to the 12th man, along with the team seahawk logo and “Go Hawks!” on the body.

Boeing’s 747 is not the first airplane to receive special Superbowl treatment. Alaska announced it would paint a Boeing 737-900 in honor of the team’s quarterback, Russell Wilson, earlier this week.
