    Official Thread: 787 First Flight

    The day has arrived, or has it? We'll keep you posted right here.

    Remember you can also follow us on Twitter for more up-to-the-minute updates.

    As of right now, here's the weather...

    KPAE 142322Z 1500/1524 13007KT 4SM BR SCT003 OVC019
    FM150200 13007KT 3SM -RA BR OVC005
    FM151000 16008KT 3SM BR OVC005
    FM152000 17008KT P6SM BKN015 OVC02

    Weather is not looking very good, but Boeing has said they will have the aircraft standing by if and when the weather clears. If it doesn't do so in time, it will be pushed to Wednesday.

    More to come...

    One more hour until the webcast starts: http://787firstflight.newairplane.com/ffindex.html

    It seems that if the weather is not good enough at 10:00pst, the plane will wait at the beginning on the runway for it to clear.

    the First Trucks are getting ready, and MANY Boeing employees are lining up and congregating at the side of the runway.

    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    Re: Official Thread: 787 First Flight

    any channels on cablevision carrying this? Was hoping to pass it only my family
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    FoxNews and CNN have feeds online, maybe they'll put them on the air also.

    It's rolling!

    Mirrodie, no cable news is showing it at the moment, although they might switch last minute.
