I was just browsing the database and came across this photo. The caption indicates that this was the 2nd visit of the 787 to SRQ. Anybody know why?

Ahh, there was a thread about it a while back. I think it was stopping there enroute to/from south America for x-wind testing.

Port of Entry for US customs coming back from South America.

SRQ has a barely used customs facility with employees available. Mostly for private flights, and for a few international flights on small aircraft. Rather simple to schedule the stop-over there.


Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.

Not to mention that SRQ is very nice place catch a pretty sunset, have a good meal and enjoy a peaceful overnight in a gulf-side hotel.

It came in on a Monday afternoon and overnighted & left on Tuesday morning. IIRC, it returned on Thursday & overnighed until mid Friday, then back to Seattle

To add: there was a different 787 back in July.

I guess the crew needed a rest. Stoping in srq and staying by the ocean or the bay is nicer than Orlando or tpa.

In July, N7874 was at SRQ stopping en route to/from South America. It overnighted both times then, as well.
