You know you can just mouse over the abbreviations too see the airport names right?

For those of us in the United states, when we see 8/3/2005....we think August 3rd, 2005. Not March 8th, 2005 Big grin

S12PPL - thats because like most Americans we expect things to be done OUR way, which is stupid.

The rest of the world reads dates the way I posted it in the title, but for those of you who are unwilling to learn the correct way I spelled it out for you in the body of the message.

Qantas707 - The 772LR will be going through flight trials out of BFI through the summer, so there will be plenty of chances to see it.

Drop me a line when you get to Seattle and I would be happy to show you around, assuming that you aren't put out by the way I mentioned the date in this thread  Big thumbs up

Jokes about the round-the-world route from PAI to BFI aside, will this flight be a 3 to 4 hour test flight, just like the other initial 777 flights were ?

P.S. For anyone that cares, there is actually an International Standard ( ISO 8601:2000 ) that specifies that dates should be written YYYY-MM-DD (e.g., 2005-03-08 ). More details can be found at this link.

cheers

Yeah, screw little endian date formats. Having the day first is the worst thing when it comes to deal with dates in text format and trying to sort by date using many standard sorting tools. You don't get things to come out in order unless you go through extra effort. I'd rather have month first than day first because at least with month first, every thing from a given month gets grouped together.

Qantas077 hope we might see it in Australia at Alice Springs. The 773ER did some testing there.

Well you are wrong on the year. In Japan it is the year Heisei 17. So we still have to wait a 1988 years to even see the thing take off!

Seriously, what would the "Big Test" be? Seattle to (South Africa?)

The irony of the situation is that this is the world's longest range aircraft, however, it's first flight will only be from two point that are less that 50nm apart  Laugh out loud

We celebrate the longest range aircraft in the world with no American customers and we're getting hung up on the date of the threat being unAmerican?

God, are we gonna get nuked or what?  Yeah sure

First, the date issue. I have to deal with dates all the time and have grown up with it one way. Having mulitple formats does make it confusing, but who are we to say it has to be a certain way. I believe the US is 5% of the worlds population?

Second the lack of US buyers. I would rather the US buyers wait until they can afford to buy the plane. It they bought it and then went under, what good would that do? Besides, it doesn't hurt the US that other countries by our biggest exports!
