Departing R/W16R for Osaka-Itami on SROV : Service Ready Operational Validation prior to the delivery, with the Haneda Airport title in the background. I can't believe I could hear this amazing ATC voice at my home airport, "Boeing 787 Heavy Experimental, cleared for take-off!" How long did we wait for this view? But now it doesn't matter, because you are here, welcome to Japan, Boeing 787. [Nikon D700, SIGMA 120-400mm F4.5-5.6]

To the previous comment, the 787 is not in PAX rev mode just yet. Just testing mode and should be delivered to ANA sometime in September 2011... ***IF*** Boeing finds nothing new wrong with the 787. It's only more than three years behind sked for delivery to ANA. :(

Great shot! I know this machine is behind schedule and all that but once it gets going it will be a best-seller!! And it also shows the fanatical safety-culture when it comes to building these fantastic flying tubes. Who cares about delays when the technical things need to be got just right. When it comes to safety $ takes back seat. Go 787 and have fun in Japan!
