Well, it's KBFI-KCOS and there're currently two 777's based at KBFI for testing...I got my guesses.

Boeing 5 or 6 times a year brings a 777 down to COS for testing different high altitude testing because the field is at 6,500ft

There is only an OO hanger. F9 is building one. but not big enough for a 777

Most likely to test the 787 engine with high altitude take offs

BINGO,


Boeing and GE do their high altitude testing out of COS, high alt, and low traffic.

With F9 in chapter 11, that seems unlikely....for now.... Thanks for the info.

Makes sense. Do they still go to IWA (Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, Mesa, AZ) for their hot testing?

I remember the original Boeing 777 in and out of COS when I was in high school... quite a plane, at the time.
