I can’t think of a better post topic for Outdoor Wednesday than the Boeing 787 1000th flight. These are test flights, just so you understand.
I’ve posted before what a Boeing fan I am so I was very excited when my husband brought me this poster. I suspect he was going to hang it in his office but he was happy to give it to me when I asked. It has a good home.
Onto the outdoor portion of this post…
A couple of test flights after the 1000th flight, I was working on a very cold yet gorgeous day. I was just in time to see that day’s test flight landing. I always seem to be around for the take-offs but not for the landings.
There is a blog that tracks the test flight schedule but it isn’t always on time since they have to make adjustments as they are flying. I waited around, in the freezing cold, until I caught these photos.
This plane is crazy quiet! Neighborhoods around airports across the nation will be very happy as this plane is put into service.
I never get tired of seeing this plane roll down the runway. With Mt Rainier in the background and the setting sun highlighting the airport, this was a beautiful day to be outside.
