I knew you would be the first one with a photo of the 787 on a.net.

Now I'm waiting to se how long it takes for the photo to get on the front page of a.net.

Comm'on guys, Royal made the effort to be there and work hard to get the 1st shot online in very short time. I just checked other website, dosen't even have the 787 photo. All credit to Royal. I really appreciate his work, to show all of us the first dreamliner.

If I lived in Seattle I would've got the first shot too mate...  Wink Royal, you might want to change the info though because its certainly not a 787-831.

What about the guys out in the sunlight on the opposite side of the plane watching across the highway? I sure hope their priority uploads get the same kind of leeway.

I wouldn't hold the fact that Royal was able to get inside and thus had wireless internet at his disposal against him, but he clipped one of the engines... Sometimes I think we get so picky that it ruins the niceness of just having the shots.

That's a hell of a good picture considering the overall setup/lighting, and the very short time you had for editing/uploading.



Just sit back, relax and have a glass of Merlot...enjoy your life!

IIR it wasnt Royal that uploaded the photo. It was sent via phone to Andrew Hunt. Blame him, not Royal for the info error.

Thanks for the kind words. Was tough to get a decent shot. 15,000 people will do that to you. The event was def. not photog friendly.

I got the customer code wrong, nobodys fault but mine. I have asked the editors to fix it.

flight deck mock-up.

After the rollout we went to the 787 Gallery for a private reception. This is where customers can pick colors, seats, fabrics, and fixtures for their planes, it is pretty cool, not like anything I have ever seen before.

OK, it's a new plane, but the shot is dark, not level and a lot of the plane is obscured.

Fragile ego? Maybe we should all relax a bit. I guess neither Royal nor Johan would deny that the picture is not matching a.net's usual standards. But then, the goal of this project was to show the first ever (not best ever) picture of a 787 on a.net. So I guess the primary target was achieved.

Looking at the other press fotos of that event, you will see they look as dark as Royal's. So unless all photographers at the event lost their skills at the same time, I guess it would be pretty safe to assume that the conditions were really lousy, and almost no one would have managed to get a better shot.

On a lighter note: all this will be perfect fuel to the tin-foil conspiracy that in fact there is no dreamliner, and this is all a big fake by Boeing... Big grin

Hi all

Image perfectly acceptable.

Quite a few uploaded already but unfortunately 2mp phone camera snaps not acceptable. After watching a bit of the launch video on the BBC this morning I wonder just how many of the crowd who were snapping away like mad, from a million feet away, will be uploading.

Well done Royal. A few weeks in the planning even if I was a week early  

Regards

Gary

Royal,

Congratulations on another Boeing scoop! For me, that flightdeck picture is equally fascinating. Looks very interesting!

Well done Royal, as usual at the right place at the right time. Sorry to be a little different here but I think the cockpit windows look awful, the rest looks sweet though. Remember everyone, you saw it first here, kudos to a.net and Royal.

I'm not convinced the raised frame is the finished design. Some photographs and comments I read from the rollout suggest that the aircraft was fastened together (literally!) quickly for the rollout - look around and you'll find some images that hint at this.

Re. the general design of the plane, I really like it and think it looks quite good, but the flight deck windows are just plain ugly....!  Smile

Anyway, well done!

I think in this case: first photo ever one should not think about any standards. It is a great picture and I am very happy we were able to see it here so fast!

Fully agree. There are many better photos available already (see threads on civil aviation) yet airlines accepted the one submitted by its own screener even if it does not meet any of a.net standards. Congrats Royal!
