The sixth 787 is seen here resting on Boeing's ramp as we're heading to BFI today. The wing has an amazing shape... looks even like a glider! Dedicated to my friends Gregoire Richier and Olivier Le Saint who I shared this flight with.

Can this thing actually fly?

This is extremely misleading. The aircraft in this photo is actually Dreamliner #3, not #1. It has NOT received new colors and has NOT had the engines replaced. The 3rd frame has always been in this scheme and has never had engines installed. Suggest deletion until corrected despite a great shot.
Cheers!

Well, I hope they don't try to fly it with those blocks on its wings!

This aircraft is ZA003, third Boeing 787, not the first one. This is a first 787 in one perspective - first one not to carry Rolls Royce engines. ZA003 will use General Electric GEnx engines.

Concur. This is in fact ZA-003. ZA-001, the first test plane, is currently in the paint hangar awaiting the structural modification needed for first flight. Cheers!

Pretty good shot, but I don't like the 787. It has an ugly nose, the wings can pass. But i've seen the first one in the factory itself and if you see it with the engines it's just like a giant embraer190/170(with those waves in the engine fuselage). But as I said a very nice shot, with some good action in it!

Nice picture, but sad in the same way.. This is not the way I want to see this bird but yet this is all we will see for some time.. Planes are not made to be on the ground.. Hope the nightmare(liner) will soon become the dream it's meant to be..

Just look at the lines of this bird. If the A380 is proving to be more economical than previously thought, I believe we're going to have great surprises with the 787!

Apart from the wing I'm not too fussed about the 787 design, it reminds me too much of a 767 which, in my opinion, is the dullest of all the Boeing designs. I think the main 'wow' factor is the oversized engines, and when they're missing it really doesn't do the 787 any favours.

Nice wings.

Very nice plane...I love the shape of the wings but sadly the engines are missing and this new paintjob is not very cool as well. I love the old Dreamliner livery, like one of the AB's 737NG had for a while.
Nevertheless nice picture though.

I'm an Airbus fan. But I want this bird to fly. Anyway, good shot. And I love those wings and tail section - very sexy.

Nice bird but I really don't like this paint scheme. So classic...

Those wings are far too sexy. Can't wait to see her in flight flexing those wings. Those horizontal stabilizers look cool too. It does look a little stubby though, an improved 767 perhaps. And what's up with the colour scheme? From the over the top "dreamliner" to the non existance? Don't they have any artistic people left in Boeing? Anyways, that is secondary, get it flying please.

Why? Do you think the wings are different to what the designers expected?

Wow! Such a beautiful airplane. Those folks who say it looks like a 767 obviously don't look at airplanes very much. The 787 is gorgeous and I can't wait to see her fly!

It doesn't look a bit like the 767 but I'd say it's based on it. Great shot!
