Boeing brands the sky with 787 test flight

    Newer Older

    I'm sitting at gate C34 at Houston Intercontinental Airport and was tipped to 787 ZA236's flight plan (BOE236) for its systems functionality and reliability tests today. The aircraft is in the last stages of flying certification flights for the 787 airframe pairing with the General Electric GEnx-1B engine. Today's flight path, like the creative skywriting we've seen before from the 747-8, traces 787 and The Boeing Company logo from Washington State to Iowa.

      They are getting quite good at this, must be hell to plan though. Looks abit like the old McDonnell Douglas logo too

      Not really a big deal to plan. Have an image of the Boeing / McDonnell Douglas logo and a flight planning software that uses a map and start sliding the mouse along and "clicking".
      Takes about 15 minutes.
