787 Dreamliner Takeoff Video



It's been delayed a bunch of times, but today they proved it can fly! Just as the 707 redefined commercial aviation for many decades, and the 747 did to a lesser degree, the 787 Dreamliner has the potential to do the same. Time will tell.

I'm posting this the 787 is flying at 15,000 feet at 157kts about 20 miles due West of my location. Paine field, the departure airport, is about 14 miles East of me. I haven't seen the 787 fly over, but I'm listening for it, and if it comes over low enough for a picture I'll get one posted.

Some blog pages haven't been loading right for me on IExp8, but are OK on Firefox. When this happens I usually have to update something. Aggravating.
