Only thing that will really stop it at this point is weather or additional tests that may need more time or extra trials. If it isn't tomorrow, it'll be this week at least.

I'm very excited, and extra excited that I don't have to wake up at 10AM to see it (realized yesterday it was Pac Time, not Eastern) :laugh:

Btw Brandon, have an AWESOME time, I would love to be in your shoes.

Wish I could view the landing. Unfortunately, I have a final exam this evening. My only hope is that the landing gets delayed! :(

If you missed takeoff, Reuters has posted this to their YouTube account.

Takeoff

Just hope they also post the landing.

EDIT: found these links of maiden flights. Might be interesting to watch too.
Boeing 777
Boeing 757
Boeing 727

The 747 is a two part series, and the 707, 717, 737, and 767 are nowhere to be found.
