there are actually 2 planes in the flight test program, but one is in the Far East.

No kidding. Of course it's Boeing.  Wink What self-respecting airline would take a 777-200LR to FAR on a revenue flight?  Wink

A little late in the year for cold weather testing.  Smile

Must be cheaper to some flight test here, rather than at Edwards? This at somewhere in Iceland/Norway is the usual cold weather testing environments.

Isn't that one of NW's service/maintenance locations? When the 744s were delivered to NW, did they fly to FAR for testing or something before going into service?

Maybe I am just dreaming here.

I couldn't pass this up as my first post!! I'm so happy that I was able to make my way up to FAR to see this wonderful bird!! I must say it was awesome!! I called the airport and they told me that Boeing was using the airport for cross wind testing. Fargo is red in the face with all of the wind they have been having, so Boeing took the opportunity to give this gem a test flight. I found a back road that took us to the foot of the runway, so it was only 100ft above us as it did it's touch and goes! I got a bunch of pics and some video with my cheap camera! I call it Christmas in June.  Wow!

Oh, here is what I know about NW and FAR. NW I know uses FAR as a training field for it's pilots. The airport is quiet enough to where they can do the touch and goes without much traffic, that and it's pretty close to MSP. I love sighting at FAR! I was blessed to get close to NWA's brand new A330 as it was doing touch and goes two summers ago! FAR has some cool planes come in and out of there! One would be surprised.

Wasn't Azstar asking who would be flying the plane? Like what's the name of the pilot, not the company?

No, NW does maintenance at Minneapolis, Duluth and Tokyo.
It would be great to see this plane at FAR....I have always liked the Fargo area, no better place to do cold-weather testing! Last time I was there it was 25 below plus wind chill....

And Fargo is a growing market, but nothing that would justify a 777  Wink

NWA brought at least the B747 and A333 there for pilot training before it entered service. It is a neat little place to watch patterns be flown by a widebody. I suppose 10k feet of runway and a slow field make it preferable for training and playing.

They can't justify much more than a DC9 at the moment.

UA can't justify more than a CRJ.

Other airlines can't justify anything.  Smile

In fall winter and spring, NW consistantly runs A320's to FAR.

I'm getting giddy, but what is the chance that NWA will use FAR as a 787 test / training site for it's pilots?? I'll stand in line for that one when the time comes!

It's a natural location for the 772LR to service given the considerable demographic there that wants to get as far out of North Dakota as possible.

I actually flew into Fargo yesterday on UAX from ORD. I looked out the window after landing (6PM) and the first words out of my mouth were "What the fuck!?" My buddy who was picking me up said that it was doing a lot of high speed taxis and engine run-ups.

I'd be perfectly happy to go to FAR, get on the 772LR, and go somewhere 18 hours away.

I think we would all be saying exactly that in that situation.

Probably a very likely chance as MSP is just too busy to warrent using that and FAR has plenty of length.

Secondly, North Dakota is not that bad, im going to school in Grand Forks and have no complaints, sure there is not as much to do as say NYC, Orlando, but hey im enjoying it.
