Nope, they fly at 10AM local time, it's 08:15 at the moment... stream starts at 09AM, so one hour before flight

In the event the crew has to bail out they will be a lot easier to see..

Crash helmets and parachutes as well until the plane makes a few flights and is determined human safe.

Just standard procedure. I just can not imagine if they really did have a serious event how you would move about the plane to the escape hatch in high g's or zero g's.
When they did the video's of the first 380 flights it was fun watching the engineers and tech's try to put their gear on.

That's the problem with all this boring two-holers. The 787 looks like a blown up 767. Though I am sure that both aircrafts are excellent in the performance. This is important and not the sights.
