    United 787

    Just noticed on Flightaware that the UA 787 is inbound to EWR from IAH as Flight 7708 estimated at 6:27 PM. Is this one of UA's domestic special runs they touted?

    Nope, that's the special flight number for ferry flights... it looks like the same one used for the delivery from KPAE to KIAH!

    Damn, I wish I could go get a shot...

    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.
    I trust you are not in too much distress. —Captain Eric Moody, British Airways Flight 9

    Thanks for the heads up...here it was, flying over my house in Central NJ (mind you, this was on the back of my camera LCD, with my crappy phone cam):



    Looked really nice, with the sun setting, and those bright beacons.

    Actually, I googled his name and flickr...and instead of getting his own flickr page, I came upon OTHER PEOPLE'S pages that were nothing but Senga fan pages!
