Mon Apr 23, 2012 9:22 pm

Anyone going? I hope it'll be in Thomson livery but i doubt it. Whoever goes make sure you take plenty of shots!

The B787 has just landed but to be honest I don't see what all the fuss is about, I mean it's just a new version of the B767 after all. It's not like the A388!

I don't see what all the fuss about, i mean its just a bigger and ugly version of B747 after all!

Back to the topic, i believe the a/c is still in Boeing House colour. They didn't repaint for any customers on the dream tour and i don't expect them to do it for Thomson

I hear Smisek talk about the 787 being really cool a hundred times a month so it amazes me Thomson is flying this a/c before any big airline.

Come on brother, she's a true beauty! Elegant and graceful like a 332 or 345. I personally think she has exquisite lines and from almost all angles is just a stunning bird.

The B787 is truly beautiful from any angle. It is by far the best looking airliner to date. Technologically it is a giant leap ahead of anything that is flying today. It is simplistic to equate it with the B767 B747 A330 or A340.
