Dang, figures id be behind the curve, was it posted in the other 787 forums? Cuz I stopped following along when it turns into looooong banter and misreading of each others points. (My point is I do not believe I am the only one who would have missed these pics if they were posted in said forums) I also did plenty searches in forums and pictures. I thought pictures of this would get on the front page...

Personally, I don't think it that pretty a bird. The front section doesn't do it for me, like other Boeing models do. I always preferred Boeings to Airbuses for that reason too (visual appeal I mean, nothing else).
Not that it matters in any way of course, if she flies well.

if you look at the other 787 photos on this site (using the photo search engine), most of them have been taken from a low angle either from the back or the front. That way the plane looks a lot longer and sleeker. Possibly using a wide angle lens.

Exactly what I have always been thinking! I've almost only seen postive remarks about the 787s appearances, but the front doesn't do it for me either. I miss the "old" style Boeing cockpit windows...

FINALLY!!!! We have seen a new step in the 787 assemblies. I am very excited, no longer talk about delays, not they are just only about deliveries. Let's see one in AA colors. It looks very nice. I give it a check of approval.
