    It was nice of the pilot to pause while the cameraperson repositioned.

    I just happened to be on my bike at gravelly point when it came overhead. There were probably 2 dozen professional photographers. It was a great to see this big guy up close. Quiet and graceful approach.

    I hope the carriers will schedule this and other high capacity aircraft into DCA to bring down the high airfares and make it a more democratic, affordable airport for the masses. The carriers coddle Congress and business travelers too much here, with all these tiny aircraft.

    The approach and landing was fantastic. I love how quickly the 787 can stop!

    Yes, but how many passengers were actually on the plane? Wouldn't this make a big difference on its stopping power?

    I remember When Leaving Tokyo @ Haneda airport the Captain announced while taxiing to the left of the aircraft was the boeing 787 and i just wanted to die because i was sitting on the right side of the aircraft.

    PBR40..if ELAL orders them, yes they will!

    This is one of the many reasons what the 787 has 896 firm orders and the A-380 has only 253. The 787 can operate out of relatively small airports such as DCA.
    The A-380 can't.

    As a retired Piedmont Pilot, this brought back fond memories. I have flown that approach down the river many times and I always loved it

    Huh? The A380 and the 787 have completely different missions. Now, the A350....

    This is especially neat for me, as our son was recently selected to be a check airman on the 787 for United.

    Finally Boeing has a winner that can make the trademark greaser landings of the
    AIRBUS's. Used be the standard Arrival! making a carrier landing with a third-
    wire trap!!! Phenomenal photography here especially since one can screw up
    the River Approach getting to close to the Washington Monument.....BRAVO BOEING
    and bigger BRAVO to the pilot!!
