    Wow, thanks for sharing - that was awesome.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Yeah...that was live. Was delayed due to weather. And there is even a larger version of this aircraft as well.

    Has it landed yet? Are they showing that live too?

    First flight was supposed to last about 4 hours, but that may be cut short since the takeoff was delayed due to weather. The website above should have the landing live when it happens. You can also follow the fligh on flightaware...once it turns back toward PAE thats your signal to start up the webcast again (at least it worked well for the 787 first flight )

    FlightAware > Boeing Commercial Airplane Group #501

    I got my license 4 years ago. Dont use it a lot. I have a couple hundred hours or so. Fly a Piper Archer to the in-laws or on vacation. But now with a kid and dog the little archer doesnt have enough room so i have been looking at getting into a lance.

    Should be around 5-6 p.m. then. I'll have to try to remember to look back.

    I love looking at flight patterns on FlightAware...but that flight path is crazy!

    It will be really impressive if it lands on a treadmill.

    Not as impressive as taking off from one.

    The building that they built that thing in is almost more impressive than the plane itself. My goodness that is a big building.
