So about a week ago the 777LR was down here at KCOS doing high altitude testing, I saw it take off and ran home to get my camera, praying that it would still be there when i got back. The only bad thing, CLOUDS and DARK clouds. So I went down and sure enough it was sitting there. So I ran and started to go up to the fence, not originally going to because I wanted some pics, but figured, why not. So I was standing there, and decided to start talking to the guy next to me. Then someone comes down the stairs of the aircraft and begins talking to us, then he told me he would be right back because he was going to give me his card since his son was going to go to UND, he so happened to be the captain. On the way back he stopped and talk to the local jet center guys, they turn around and tell us, go to the gate we will meet you there and pick you up. I couldnt believe it! Sure enough we even got a tour of this great experimental aircraft! I tried my best to save the pics due to weather so here are some pics!

Thanks a lot, Burnsie, looks like a winner, doesn't it? I'm a great believer in the old saying - "If it looks right, it usually flies right."

The captain wasn't a guy named John Cashman by any chance, was he?

Very nice! I used to work near COS way back when they'd bring the 767/757 and 747-200 (or 300?) in for testing..I'm jealous!

what a lucky person you are!

Imagine seeing the prototype up close and personal and even talking to the captain!

The closest I can come is through the glass windows in airports or by the tarmac...LOL....

Wish you more luck with new planes!
