Which Will Fly First: 787/SSJ/ARJ21/A400M?

Fri Dec 21, 2007 12:49 pm

  • Sukhoi SJ: end of 2007 was the last thing I heard - doesn't sound too realistic  scratchchin 
  • ARJ21: march 2008, according to latest announcement  airplane 
  • B787: end of march 2008, if all goes well  crossfingers 
  • A400M: subsequent delays, first flight now estimated july 2008  Confused

Add a delay here and there, and those dates will not be very far apart! So, what are your bets???  Wink
One thing's for sure, with 4 new airplanes set to fly, 2008 will be an exciting year for us aviation fans! Big grin

I really hope for the 787. But think we will see either the 787 or the Sukhoi SJ.

I go for the ARJ21, least bold of the designs mentioned.
From New Yorqatar to Califarbia...
