I happened to not be in the country at the time, but did the media make a big deal out of the roll-out? Was the first flight aired live on TV?

Most of the time the media act like vultures the way they cover the death of an aircraft (crashes/cancellations), do they cover the birth of one?

In STL, since there is a big Boeing plant here, it did make local news here. Both the roll-out, and first flight ewre on the news, but no live coverage here.

That is really sad, IMO, the media reflects their attitudes to the public, like taking aerospace for granted in okay.  Sad

I was in Baltimore on business when this happened, and recall that both the Sun and USA Today had major stories on the roll-out.
I doubt whether the stories are archived but it's possible.
