787 Flyover At Boeing Classic 8/26

Thu Aug 25, 2011 6:49 pm

FYI: Tomorrow at about 11:20am, a 787 (so I have read) will do a flyover to kick off the Boeing Classic golf tournament in Snoqualmie, WA.

I don't have a decent camera so I'll only be watching.

Previous years flyovers (I believe all 777's) have varied from decent to good depending on the weather and seemingly how low the pilot was. Tomorrow should be great weather and hopefully make for good viewing. It's pretty cool to watch a large aircraft fly up the Snoqualmie valley below the peaks on either side, do a quick turn somewhere over North Bend and then come back. Certainly more interesting than watching near an airport!

Damn, was hoping they'd trot out the 748-i. Now THAT would be an impressive sight coming up the valley as you say
 Wow!

I had the same thought. It would have been really cool. But hey, I remember thinking that it should be the 787 3 or 4 years ago, so at least we have that going for us!
