Hey guys,

Well, I just received a Boeing newsletter giving me the link to a site that has several pics which I believe are somehow updated.

I must say I'm impressed with the development the 787's been having. I think it's beautifull!. Here I'll post the pictures that left me pretty impressed!

Also, here's the site!

Cheers!

Nice pics. I like the cockpit view. Looks to be a lot of space up there.

Nice to see HUD's (head-up display) appear more in airliners, hopefully the C-17 cockpit may become standard in large transports.

Regarding the last pisture of the overhead view, can anyone tell what type of wheel truck is on the main gear, 4 tires (like 747/757/767) or 6 tires (like 777)? If it was four, then the main strut should have extended between the pair shown, but I don't see one.



The meaning of life is curiosity; we were put on this planet to explore opportunities.

They all look like computer generated concepts to me. I find it hard to get excited over cartoons. I will wait to evaluate the real thing.

It seems to be one like the 777 (six wheels)!!!!!!! I love it...

I really hope to see AZ's livery on this aircraft!

The 787 will be much lighter than the 777 and will require only 4 wheel main struts.

Think 767-400 on the landing gear.

I love these concept pictures. If the aircraft comes out of the assembly looking like that it will be amazing! But I really think they will be altered in real life, and look more like regular cockpits. I hope Aeroflot will make the decision to buy this beautiful bird...

I really don't like the look of the winglets and prefer the clean look of the raked wing tips instead......

Which 787 version(s) will get the winglets?

This is quite interesting - does anyone know when were winglets included? I've only seen computer-generated images with the raked winglets to date.

Are winglets such as the Aviation Partners retrofit design proposed for the 787?

Only the 787-3, which is intended for short to medium range domestic flights, like the A300. The 787-8, -9 and possibly the proposed -10X will get the raked wingtips.

I personally am eager to see if the artist impressions of the 787's wingflex are going to become reality ones the very first one has it's first flight next year.

The 787-10 will almost definitely get 6 and has been talked about by Boeing as a modification that would be necessary, and the 787-9 might as well if they decided to do the 787-10, as then the d-costs aren't as high. The HGW of the 773ER and 772LR is such that the 6 wheel truck is barely capable of spreading the load with damaging some tarmacs even after it was enlarged to support it.

The 787-9 has not been firmed completely, so it may get the 6 wheel truck so that a 10000nm 787-9LR would not require as much extra design work.

The 787-3 and 787-8 will have a 4 wheel truck no matter what.

That pic does look like 6 wheel truck, but it might be the angle.

when I was little I use to make up what airplanes should look, and I always put windows in the roof; I don't know if I'm just seeing things or if that's for real!!!

I hope that there aren't delays in the process, that would be a bummer  Sad

Love the cockpit shots. Hooray for HUDs!

The only thing that kinda confuses me is that the cockpit looks very large and very empty in that second picture. Perhaps it's just perspective; I don't think there will actually be that much empty space in the production version.

I am still not sure about those wings, they look great in the air but what will they look like on the ground? Will they end up looking like the 777 with raked wing-tips.

It's ugly on the outside but great on the inside!

Is Boeing going into the Flight Simulator add-on market or is this aircraft actually real?

As 474218 said, it'll be a bit more interesting when we actually see some real pics of an assembled aircraft.

What I see is that this a/c is not 100% shaped yet. I think the tail form and size are not proportional to the main fuselage... it looks kind of unshaped somehow. However, I love the engines, the wing-tips and the nose, they look amazing!

Really, I expect it to come out a bit more aesthetic... ofcourse, it will come better than the A380!

Cheers!

All the pictures above are from after the September 2005 design freeze of the B787. That's what it will look like.

In the passenger cabin? No. That's likely just the lighting conditions.

The B787 will have a small triangular window above the entrance doors.

The video of the RR engine sucks. You have to wade through the boring tripe at the beginning to actually see the engine run -- and then they show virtually nothing.

Boo! Hiss!

You're right. Interesting. The most common image I must have been seeing was the larger 787 variant with raked wingtips rather than winglets. Are the raked wingtips the same as the 777 design? They look pretty similar.
