I liked the Andrew's joke too.
It could add another joke: " A very expensive advertisement of All Nippon is running around Paine filed".

All press pictures are taken from an angle different than this one, they make the airplane look bigger. But it's kinda small at this angle.

Nice livery, but the 787 still looks like a 767.

I just realise that the 787 have many sharp parts, its spiky engines, the tip of the wings and tailfin, and not to forget its nose! Does anyone think that one can get cut by those parts? Especially the engines.

It looks small because the windows are so big compared to most airliners- It's all perspective

Beautiful airplane! People can make their jokes, but all will be silenced when the 787 finally flies. Its a game changer for sure.

A refreshing change from all those 767s, Airbuses, and other old aircraft. If only it would fly . . . Will it ever?

I could not believe what my eyes were seeing when I took a glance at the thumbnail. Oh, my God. 787! I mean, it is Boeing's newest plane. It is simply awesome. Great is not enough to describe. Therefore, you got a "STUNNING" picture!

After all the marketing.. it looks.... ok... just ok. Most important, can it fly?

Great shot. Interesting area below the R2 Door and what seems to be behind the Forward Cargo Door. It almost looks like an old fashioned boiler plate patch with a bunch of rivets (of course, probably not on a composite fuselage). Sensor matrix around the Static Ports? Doesn't have the sensor on a line off the vertical stabilizer like other test planes. APU is running and looks like Take Off Flaps. Despite all the drama, hope it flies soon...

I have to remind myself that the windows are huge on this thing, so using them as a size reference leads one to think the 787 is smaller than it really is! Beautiful plane!

The B787 may not be the best looking plane out there, but it sure looks more graceful than the giant flying whale . . . *cough*A380*cough*. ;)

Not a very good looking plane, really..I like the engines though. And yes, it looks like it's 737/320 sized.

I know why he is saying "plastic plane"! We should wonder: "Can this thing actually fly?"

It'll be one of the best captions for B787. I am also very happy on this photo uploaded as a Japanese guy, and who went to Everett factory on a Boeing Tour to see 787 assembly line last year.

That's a great shot of a beautiful airplane. It will look even more beautiful when it goes wheels up for the first time.

A previous responder says that the 787 "is not a very beautiful aircraft." If he thinks the 787 is not a good looking aircraft, I wonder what he (or she) thinks of the A-380. Now there's an ugly airplane!

This is definitely the future and it looks stunning from this angle. When this "plastic plane" will fly and will carry you comfortably over the clouds, then you will actually "feel" the beauty of it!

The vertical stabilizer looks a little bit small for her.

The photo itself is very nice and indeed historic. But I agree with some people here, it's not the most beautifull plane Boeing has ever build. For me it's a way to futuristic model, just as the a350 will be. It's just like an E190/170 which they stretched and added some ugly engines. The Embraer model is very nice because it's so small and it has those 'old styled' winglets, which the 787 is and has definetly not. Altough there is one thing I do like: the tail, it brings some smoothness in the aircraft.

Very nice! She looks really good! But i do think the A350 is better looking but nevertheless, you can't call her ugly! :)

From this angle, the front end of the 787 reminds me of the caravelle. Does anyone see the similarity too? :)

Why is it a plastic plane? Because of the composites it is made of.

Hmmm... Something seems wrong here. Plane is fully painted, but it can't be delivered. Unless it is going to be used for testing, there seems to be a problem with the order of events. To me, usually, tests are done before the pane is painted in the final airline's livery. Oh well. I still like the photo. I just wish ANA did a special livery for this, celebrating the first 787.

What I don't like about the 787 and the A380 is that they both have large foreheads! In my opinion; the 777 is the best looking airplane ever.

You say "some plastic plane"?? It's the future, man!! Ok, it's not Boeing's best looking a/c, but I think that a photographer shouldn't write these things on his own photo.
