787 Flight Testing Update!

Post by seahawks7757 » 02 Mar 2010, 02:55

I was going through the logs from todays flight test and noticed the 787 got up to a speed today of Mach .97/642 and went up around 32,000 feet. Just thought I would share the Achievment with all as they are doing more and more flutter tests with ZA001 now. ZA004 is currently parked in the hanger at BFI getting fitted out after its first flight last week and ZA002 is continuing to have good fligths as well. I got them both this morning and should be posting pics soon.
Heres my ZA001 Section:

ZA002 Section:

Like stated above both should be updated here shortly with todays Pics. I also get ZA002 Yesterday with Mt. Rainier in the backdrop!

Also I am starting a 787 Flight Test Blog that will be updated with pics and information as the testing of this aircraft continues. I am just getting it started so it may take justa few days before it really gets rolling-

I think I'd probably be so busy starring at the 787, I'd totally blow the landing! Ahhh well! Worth it!

So far 0 for 12 there however I found out about this other site from a friend and they seem a little more practical when it comes to accepting photos-
