787 First Flight, Place Your Bets!

Wed Nov 19, 2008 7:19 am

I do not want this to become an a vs b war, all I want to do is have a thread with people guessing when the 787 will fly. The winner, or winners will be those who guessed the correct date. If you want to pick a date that someone else has already picked just put your name beside their's. Copy and paste everyone's guesses down the page.

I will start things off:

I'd really like to put myself down for April 1st just because it's fools day and I am not inferring anything by that am I?
However considering the problems they face I think 5 months from now might be optimistic.
I remember when the DC-3 was new!

That's why I am saying it will be over a year.

Right, there you go, I've done it. DON'T SCREW IT UP AGAIN PLEASE.

PASTE YOUR GUESS IN THE CORRECT PLACE (CHRONOLOGICALLY) IN THE LIST AND COPY THE WHOLE LIST INTO YOUR POST.

Do not change the format of the list, and do not alter it in any way other than adding your guess. it is not rocket science!

A trip around the sun with no expenses paid, started when the 787 lands.
Right?

So at this point, it appears that Bbin333 and 787seattle are out of the running given B's most recent announcement that it's earliest 2Q. Early March is technically 2Q, but...

Hi all!

I'm surprised no-one has suggested this one!... Or is it because it falls across the holiday weekend!?
