I just wanted to say how glad I am to live near the Seattle area. I get a good smattering of planes coming into SEA, but morso than that, the test traffic from BoEing is absolutely great! Just yesterday I was out on a walk and the BRAND NEW 747-400ER PROTOTYPE came screaming out of the clouds and mist at extremely low altitude, all of its lights blazing and speeding along at a good clip. It was the coolest thing I've ever seen! Do any other northwesterners have any other stories about cool stories related to boeing tests? Are there any French users from the Toulouse area who have airbus stories? Just curious!
