Dreamliner 002 doing crosswind testing at Keflavik this morning. The light was atrocious, but the winds were 25 gusting 30 knots, which is not as much as for the A380, when they were almost constantly blowing 45 knots. This shows the plane crabbing into runway 20 with the wind from the east. One can see the runway marker line like the aircraft is landing across it.

It's a great photo of a great plane to begin with; but tell me......where is the photographer standing ? ( Or does he work for airport security, maybe? ) If not, must have a very good "in" with somebody ! It's great because it's "different"...not to mention, it's in Iceland, of all places!

I know there have already been several comments regarding the wing flex, but I can't help it... It's just amazing with this bird. Those wings really are beautiful.

I have to admit that the wings are the only spectacular thing on this bird... i expected it to be more fascinating... but anyway i guess the cabin of the 787 must be great! There were quite a few announcements about the nice atmosphere onboard due to special light-systems and so...

I guess it is scary to see those wings as a passenger.

The 78 does not have wings...it has claws. Magical pic of a magical bird getting sideways just before touchdown. Magnificent.

Must be a sudden wind gust to flex wings like that. Remarkable shot. Fast enough shutter speed to define comp blades. Well done!

Yep, great shot. To the South African guest, what you see in the engines are the stators in the by-pass duct, not the compressor blades. These straighten the air flow. Slow shutter blurs the fan blades allowing you to see the stators.

I think this is one of my favourite airliner shots, regardless of aircraft type. Just beautiful! I love the wing flex, much less the aircraft's orientation to the runway. Staggering image.

Simply breathtaking . Is the wing flex purposely designed for efficiency or a byproduct of the carbon fibre design ?
