    Boeing 787 Dream Tour March 2012 Announced

    http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=2141

    • March 1-4: Toronto, Canada, to visit Air Canada and local suppliers.
    • March 4: Boston, Mass., in support of Japan Airlines, which has announced that it will offer 787 service on the Tokyo-Boston route.
    • March 5-7: Newark, N.J., to visit United Airlines and its local stakeholders.
    • March 8-9: Mexico City, Mexico, to visit Aero Mexico.
    • March 10-12: Phoenix, Ariz., to visit Honeywell, other suppliers and Boeing employees.
    • March 13: San Diego, Calif., to visit Goodrich and other suppliers.
    • March 14-15: Long Beach, Calif., to visit leasing companies, Boeing employees and suppliers.
    • March 15-17: Salt Lake City, Utah, to visit Boeing employees and suppliers.

    I'll be in TO, hopefully the Boston guys can get some shots, I guess EWR is a no go though...

    KEWR PANYNJPD better prepare for an onslaught of Spotters Is it:

    --Fly in on the 5th
    --Sit on the ground until the 7th
    --Depart on the 7th

    ? Or will it fly in and out giving rides to VIPs and NYCA members throughout the week?

    Hey guys,
    Previous tour stops have generally included tours of the aircraft that are limited to the target audience that caused them to bother to stop there in the first place. Though I have not confirmed the plans with Boeing, I imagine the 787 will be open to touring for United folks at EWR. They have done VIP flights at a few stops, IIRC…I imagine there would probably be one at EWR…though again I don’t know for sure.
    In general the aircraft has not been open to the public.
    If/when I receive more details I’ll be happy to share as I am able to.

    Judging by the last time a big group spotted together there it will be fun. Is Phil Mocek available?

    Senga will be lurking for sure. This type is probably the only noteworthy frame I got before he did. It was a personal mission!

    I dunno, wouldn't be surprised if one of the Sengaclones was hiding in a light fixture in the Everett factory and got a shot of it six years ago.
    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.

    This is true he has morphing capability. He never disappoints.

    OK, if ZA003 is coming to EWR, if you guys come up with a time and a place I will conform with that time and place

    This calls for some stealthy spotting

    Darn I will be in PHX at the end of the month. Probably the closest I will get to this thing unless they take pity on KMSP and send it up here for cold weather testing....
