Aviation Photo #1755898 Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner - All Nippon Airways - ANA

[ Medium Large ]
152 of 749
The highlight of my trip was the 787 landing at Boeing Field. I took many photos but picked tis one to illustrate the amazing wingspan and flex. Beautiful aircraft that looks even better in real life than on photographs.

The wingflex indeed is amazing but the aircraft is not beautiful at all.

I absolutely agree with the visitor from Germany. The wings are somptuous, but the plane itself has nothing of really exceptional.

Great picture...Lucky Boy....The wings seem to be in movement. But the Boeing 777-300ER is still my favorite.

Beautiful wings indeed. But as a passenger I wonder how much of a view this flex will cut for passengers sitting close to the wings.

I guess you that was a good decision!:)
This is actually the best angle, i like the wings, they look so flexible. But i have to admit that i am a bit disappointed of this bird as it looks in reality now... It looks so short if you have a view from the side... The 777 is much more beautiful!

This a 5 out 5 picture just because I can't give it 10 out of 5!!!! Invention and manufacturing that is second to none. Airbuses are falling out of the sky:( This pix is by the way my wallpaper! Great shot HGabor!

Boeing 787 is best.

I seriously doubt if anyone is ever going to build an airplane that everyone on this site thinks is beautiful!
having said that, I think this plane IS BEAUTIFUL! Also, I think this is a totally AWESOME photo!!! Sharp plane, sharp U.P.S. truck on highway, and very sharp, very colorful trees, background; Plus....the photo is interesting! What more can you ask for ?

I forgot to mention the road sign.......you can even read the sign!
BTW.....whether you think the 787 is beautiful or not, when Boeing gets it "Right", this baby is going to make a lot of carriers a lot of "bucks"; (then we'll see who thinks it's "beautiful"........)

"Beautiful plane. Great shot. BTW, what's that small thingie behind top of rudder?"

I think it's called the "Trailing Bomb" Not because it is a bomb, but because it looks like a bomb. Depending on what readings they get from the trailing bomb....the chase aircraft....radar returns....and I imagine GPS...they will fix the location of the sensors at the best location on the fuselage. It is used to get an accurate air speed of the aircraft when they are still doing the final calibrations for the locations of the air speed sensors on the fuselage. I think.
"The trailing bomb method only calibrates the aircraft static source. The bomb must be stable when flying below and behind the aircraft, any oscillations will make the reference static pressure invalid. At high speeds the bomb tends to rise up into the wake of the aircraft, which causes bomb oscillations; therefore, the trailing bomb has an upper airspeed limit. The trailing bomb is useful for most speeds up to approximately 200 knots and is particularly useful for helicopters. In addition, the trailing bomb can also be used down to stall speeds.
The trailing cone method is capable of a much higher speed range than the trailing bomb and is a favorite method with the large aircraft manufacturers. The trailing cone method only calibrates the aircraft static pressure system."

This picture is so good you can see the exhaust stream, clean as it is, against the background. It looks like the 787 has vectored thrust.
