SAN will see the 787 on Mar 12 and 13

Mon Mar 05, 2012 7:33 pm

I thought I'd make sure that the many spotters who call San Diego home have their calendars marked for next Tuesday, March 13, as the Dreamliner will be visiting Lindbergh Field! Here's the link from the UT article dated 2/22:
http://www.utsandiego.com/news/2012/...ng-787-dreamliner-tour-sd-airport/

And here's one paragraph that might interest many folks, not even in San Diego, mentioning the current tour of the 787:

Quote:
This next leg begins March 1 in Toronto, followed by stops in Boston, Newark, Mexico City and Phoenix before landing in San Diego on March 13. After San Diego, the jet will visit Long Beach and Salt Lake City before heading to South America.

Length of her visit here nor times are mentioned but I assume there will be additional press on the event as the time nears. In any case, it looks like there will be a landing on the 13th and I imagine there will be a few photographers down at the end of 27 for the occasion...

Enjoy!

I am assuming it is going there because they designed (and built?) the APUs in San Diego by Hamilton Sundstrand.
If you have never designed an airplane part before, let the real designers do the work!

I have no idea how long the tour's SAN-stop has been scheduled , nor do I know the reason. I can't help but feel that the fact that JL just announced 787-service to our fair city is part of the reason, as well as the fact that San Diego is the ideal city and airport for such an airplane. Many locals expect we will see more flights to more intercontinental destinations in the future because a plane like this makes it possible!

And yes, San Diego certainly has a rich history of aircraft and aircraft-parts manufacturing as well as involvement in the development of avaiation (both civil and military.) So I'm not real surprised that Boeing has included a stop here.

I also note in the current edition of the article that unfortunately, tours of the Dreamliner by the public are apparently not going to happen. My guess is that this will be a fairly short visit with local airport folks and area VIPs allowed to see the plane and that's probably it.

Aerostructures business for Goodrich, the 787 partner that produces the Dreamliner's distinctive scalloped engine nacelles. Goodrich also provides fuel quantity indicating, proximity sensing, and cargo handling systems, as well as electric brakes.

Another 787 partner based in San Diego is Hamilton Sundstrand Power Systems, a division of United Technologies, who provides the Dreamliner's auxiliary power unit system. We're proud to share the 787 with invited employees of these two valued Boeing suppliers.

Quoting SANFan (Reply 2):

I expected that the tour was for VIPs, (invitation only), and support for the upcoming SAN-NRT flights. I just
want to see it in person! That's enough for me. I wonder if the green utility box will be crowded? I know it
most certainly will be when the first JAL 787 touches down at Lindbergh from Narita!

You mean, anyone ELSE??? Wouldn't surpise me a whole lot... BA is a prime candidate for the 2nd spot (behind JL in Dec.) to bring her here for future winter seasons if loads stay the way they are this (the first) winter; it looks like summer will probably remain the T7, load-wise. (Of course who knows what all the numbers were on the summer runs so the 787 could be a better fit yield-wise even in the peak season...)

What I'd really like to see is takeoff from SAN with a full payload and topped-off tanks! That's the real test for our little airport -in-a-salad bowl -- how she climbs up and over Pt Loma at MTOW!

Hey everyone, just wanted to give a heads-up and "warning" about the Dreamliner's visit to Lindbergh Field. Both SANMAN66 and I have been trying to keep an eye on things and all of a sudden there is some confusion about even the date of the visit.

Here'a a link to an article from last Thursday (March 8) saying the 787 will be at SAN's Landmark Aviation on MONDAY, MARCH 12, at 8 a.m! (And remember, that's Pacific DAYLIGHT Time!!)
http://www.stockmarketsreview.com/news/291810/

Apparently she is spending the weekend in PHX (where she arrived on Friday, Mar 9) and will now pop over to SAN Monday morning? Does that mean she may stay overnight and be here Tuesday also, or will she hop up the coast to LGB sometime on Monday? Has anybody got the scoop on what's actually happening? (There has been no recent information on the U/T website since late February...)

It would be great if we can get the correct story out to those of us interested, preferably BEFORE the landing takes place! Any updates or definite information would be most welcomed.

There's nothing on Flightaware that tracked the flight from MEX to PHX. It still shows ORD-MEX.
I want to be sure it's coming on March 12. Is there any other sites that is able to track the flight?

787 is scheduled to arrive to LGB on Tuesday at 10am and will be here for 48 hours. Tours of a/c are limited to 600 Boeing employees.
LGB....where you can watch the grass grow because the traffic is so slow.

Someone nicely changed the title of the thread but I still have no idea if the date is correct or not. I've just checked the sites and articles I know about and what I posted in reply #11 still stands - both March 12 and 13 have now been given as the date of the visit to SAN. (The March 12 date is from a more recent article but...) Maybe it will be a 2-day visit (?) but I know a lot of people wanted to see (and record) the landing... and takeoff.

So, good luck friends. I hope someone is there (SANMAN66?) tomorrow morning in case that IS the correct date! Otherwise, I have no other information on the matter.

I'm with SANFan on this one. This is a marketing tour, not a thanks-guys-for-all-your-hard-work tour. I sense that San Diego is going to be a major benefactor of the 787 and that we are going to see a number of international non-stops open up once the plane makes it out of Everett.

The Dreamliner arrived on Friday at PHX and went directly to the FBO-Cutter Aviation. There were tours of the aircraft for employees of Honeywell (which has four major subsystems on the B787) and also a short media tour. The aircraft has been parked (and closed up) all weekend.

Here is a photo I shot on Sunday afternoon from the patio at Cutter Aviation.

The thing is, San Diego DOES have the traffic and IS a good, healthy market -- and it has been for a long time. We just had to wait for the airplane to exist that could tap into it because the #!>%*$ community could never make up its mind about a suitable airport that would have allowed these intercontinental routes years ago.

I look forward to reports from people who see the landing tomorrow morning; please keep us posted!

Every indication from Boeing here says that they're leaving at 8 AM, which means it will probably be landing in SAN just before 9 AM.

No it's looking like a 10:30 arrival and now word is its a door issue. Probably the more likely story since I believe it was mentioned earlier in this thread about a door seal problem yesterday in PHX.

I've been waiting out the delay by watching for it to move on the I-10 traffic cam at the Salt River bridge. Guess I can go outside soon to see it fly past!

Edit: Oops! I guess the tail on the cam I thought was the 787 wasn't. And I was indoors when it flew over enroute to SAN. Rats!!

Where: Landmark Aviation, 2904 Pacific Highway San Diego, Calif. 92101

When: Monday, Mar. 12, 2012 at 8:00 a.m. PDT

Boeing is making the fourth leg of the 787 Dream Tour, with multiple stops in North America, including San Diego.

The Dream Tour airplane, ZA003, is outfitted with the 787's special cabin features, including a welcoming entryway, dramatically larger dimmable windows, bigger bins and dynamic LED lighting. The airplane is configured with a luxurious business-class cabin, an overhead crew rest compartment and an economy class section.

The airplane will visit San Diego March 12 for media tours, as well as tours for employees of major San Diego-based suppliers on the 787, including Chula Vista-based Goodrich Aerostructures, which is providing the nacelles and thrust reverser for the 787, and Hamilton Sundstrand, which provides the airplane's auxiliary power unit (APU). The airplane will not be open to the public.

For updates on the 787 Dream Tour, including videos, photos and reports from the tour stops, visit www.newairplane.com .

Media wishing to cover this event should call or e-mail Patrick Palmer (contact information listed below) no later than Friday, Mar. 9.

Current security conditions require media representatives covering this event to present affiliation credentials.

The event will be held at Landmark Aviation at 2904 Pacific Highway San Diego, Calif. Because Landmark's limited parking area is reserved for its clients, parking will be provided for media in the gravel lot located north of the low speed wind tunnel at 3050 Pacific Highway. Signs along Pacific Highway will direct media to the lot.

Media should arrive at Landmark by 8:15, as badging by the San Diego Country Regional Airport Authority is required to cover this event. Transportation by bus to a shooting location to capture the landing of the 787 will be provided. The bus will leave Landmark at 8:30. The airplane is scheduled to arrive at Lindbergh Field around 9:00.

After landing, the airplane will taxi to Landmark Aviation. Boeing will have a short media briefing, after which media will be invited on board to tour the airplane. Experts from Boeing, Goodrich and Hamilton Sundstrand will be on hand to answer media questions on board the airplane.

Missed approach or flyover? She's over the harbour..

Looks like maybe she wanted to try a runway 9 approach? (According to what I see on FltAware.)

Is she down yet?

Hey Tugger, too bad you couldn't figure out a way. A lot of us are disappointed to not get a peek inside.

Thanx for that info on The Visit.
