The Boeing 787 took off on her first flight at 10:27am local time:

Wishing her many safe flight hours, and congratulations to Boeing.

It was fantastic to watch this historic moment from the comfort of my room in London.


Its about the airlines and the planes they fly

I just watched it as well from the comfort of my bed.
Congratulations to all who made this day become a success.
I look forward to flying on one of these birds in the near future.

Anyone know where I can find it?

Quoting Stitch (Reply 6):
Ignore the partisans (on both sides) and hoist a pint in celebration!

Damned right! She looked absolutely gorgeous as she rotated. Huge congratulations to all at Boeing and elsewhere who played a part in bringing this beautiful aircraft to life.

Here's to the 787!
