Seattle 787 Spotting

Fri Aug 23, 2013 6:15 pm

Hi everyone - I'm going to have a little time to kill in the Seattle area on Monday evening / Tuesday morning. Where is a good spot to go watch/snapshot some 787 takeoffs? Street address or coordinates would be appreciated.

Thanks!

There are no 787s current operating into/out of SEA, and BFI only sees a very occasional test flight. Your best bet is to head up to Everett to the Future of Flight, maybe take the factory tour while you're there.

Basically that is the jist of things BFI only sees line 4 and 5 doing flights, but 4 is in SBD and 5 just came back yesterday so it will be iffy. Best bet is the Future of flight and the view deck. Flightaware is a good tool to have just be careful that boeing tends to run on the late side and Everett is an hour from SEA.

Hope this helps,
JR in SEA
P.s. bring a medium lens and the flightline is across the way where all the testing ones leave from.
