    787 First Flight

    The Boeing 787 is about to take its first flight. Less than two minutes until it starts it taxi, boeing has live video, audio, and atc on this website.

    Rockwell has done a good deal of work on this so I'm sure a few Cyclones have worked on it.

    I have a good friend who does a lot of the non-destructive evaluation of the composites that were used in this plane.

    They deserve a big party, ya know, since they were billions of dollars over budget and a couple years late.

    That's quite a plane though!

    Ok, I am lost, what is so special about this plane? Other than it is new.

    Whole list of reasons why it's supposed to be better but it's probably getting so much attention since it's been hyped up and is now 2+ years behind schedule

    Re: 787 First Flight

    To be fair, what isn't behind schedule with a big government contractor/largest commercial aircraft maker?

    Please note that the 787 is a commercial aircraft, not a government project
