Let's hope it wont drop the parts on its way again
|Quoting NYC777 (Thread starter):|
Does anyone know what parts they are transporting (central wing box, mid-fuselage, etc.)?
|Quoting Aaron747 (Reply 7):|
I'll be out there tomorrow around 1500 local in case they're early.
Caught the loading equipment in ready position at spot 404 today:
|Quoting Beech19 (Reply 8):|
As "plain" as that pic is... it might be one of my favorites. Knowing the potential that will be loaded at that location.
|Quoting NYC777 (Reply 9):|
How long will the Dreamlifter be out there in Japan? I would thik less than 24 hours.
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 10):|
It's like the opening scene in starwars where all the soldiers are waiting for darth vader to blast through the door. waiting, waiting...
|Quoting NYC777 (Reply 12):|
And she's away. The Dreamlifter is on it's way to Nagoya and should be there in about 11 hours.
|Quoting ER757 (Reply 15):|
Anyone know when the 2nd LCF will be flying? I'd think it would have to be fairly soon if they want to stay on schedule.
|Quoting Aaron747 (Reply 21):|
When they called Centrair tower for approach clearance tonight they identified themselves as Experimental following the Boeing callsign. That would seem to suggest they've yet to be certified.
|Quoting NYC777 (Reply 23):|
So it comes down to that Boeig pilots are flying Boeing planes. Why do all that? Jsut have Boeing run the ops using their pilots? I don't know if that saves money or not though.
|Quoting RichardPrice (Reply 24):|
so they would be better off having the aircraft operated by a dedicated cargo operator.
|Quoting Ikramerica (Reply 26):|
Will this plane be maintained like a military jet, more downtown than uptime and lots of continuous maintenance to make sure it's always performing 100% when needed? I would assume that any service disruptions would be very damaging to their schedule.
|Quoting Andhen (Reply 25):|
It will be very exiting to see how the LCF is loaded, and how the parts look like. Keep the pictures coming..
|Quoting Andhen (Reply 29):|
Wow that was a massive loader, wonder how much weight it can carry.. By the way, what is the heaviest part of the dreamliner, I guess it is the centerwingsection..
