Customers can be so irritating, but without them, there wouldn't be any testing or new models. Reminds me of Yes Minister, and the UK's most administratively efficient hospital, with no patients.

Remember behind the scenes, the Boeing sales team, are trying to firm customers to specific milestone payments, on specific dates, on specific aircraft, from specific tranches. Hard to do with just modeled performance. Well not difficult, but customers will build in more penalties and exit opportunities, the more fluid the performance promises, if you can get them to execute at all. And where WB aircraft especially are concerned, the financiers have become as concerned with performance as their customers, so the customer may say yes, and the financiers no, not until we see the numbers.

Presumably Boeing's most annoying CEO's are the majority of current X customers. Airbus would be keen to switch X orders to A350 orders, if Boeing's X sales and engineering teams are too busy building and testing new aircraft to pause their diaries.

In another life I have seen useless flights performed during the flight test campaign. I am not going to go into specifics.


They have an established test plan to follow, and a cash flow crisis to manage. I see no productive reason to speculate that they are conducting flights which don't contribute towards completion of that test plan.


It seems you have not been involved in any flight test.

Time to time you fly with the best flight test card you can have in the world and a snag in the instrument or probe or gauge happens. Your flight hours are screwed.

It is not because you have a good flight test plan that all of your your test flight hours are productive.

There are other reasons why you fly an aircraft not following the plan.

Despite the fact there are dedicated flight for the NAMS (or cruise performance tests), some people are not patient to wait. Unfortunately you cannot always say, "Go play around else where, we have things to do here."

You then spend several hours of flight to do some cruise NAMS tests with an aircraft that is not even in production standard.

That(s another example of a nonproductive flight. Obviously, you try to minimize those unproductive flights.

I have also see the case where an aerodynamicist told the production and flight test team, "You need to do something to this slat track opening otherwise the stall characteristics would not be good enough because of possible flow separation." Obviously they want to go "follow the plan" and go on.
Guess what? The stall characteristics are not good enough and they had to redo the test after something has been done to the slat track opening.
That's another kind of unproductive flight test hours.

Yes, unfortunately there are many reasons a flight test is unproductive. I can give you other examples, but the above should be enough to convince you that a flight test, as well planned as it is, can have many unproductive flight hours.


I do work in engineering test, and I have worked on tests that I would not consider worthwhile but was told to do. That did not make them unproductive. It made them sub-optimal. I'm slowly getting more patient over the years with the fact that everything done by human beings is to varying degrees sub-optimal, but that very often sub-optimal efforts are still positive efforts.

What I was really trying to understand, though, is whether you were suggesting something like perhaps they are flying to put on a show of accruing hours, but secretly a big problem had been discovered that would invalidate much of it.

We tend to pay attention to flight test hours here, because it's one thing we know how to measure. Since actual certification and delivery is based on demonstrating compliance with all of the regulatory and contractual requirements, not hours, flight time statistics aren't necessarily very informative. So I see your point, but there was not any basis given for concern on this program, and if there was a more clear segue in the thread to it, I missed that.

This is the closets thing we have to “feedback” from a propulsion engineer from Boeing who was on WH003s first propulsion test. I don’t think it’s anything particularly telling but he seems impressed with the aircraft.

Again, I know it doesn’t mean anything because he loves his company so they may very well be bias! But hey!

Yes, in my spreadsheet you can see a very significant uptick on test flights in August 2020...(link to my spreadsheet will always be in my signature for anyone new). Looks like it's full steam ahead (please visit VCV soon lol).

Not to de-rail the thread, but what's the situation at VCV with all the fires in the area? Is it affected at all?

Not really, there aren't any fires in that area. The fires are either way out east near the border of Nevada, or closer to Palmdale (PMD)/Mojave (MHV).

They look like
  • either microphone array or
  • pressure probes

I think those are more likely microphones.
Perhaps they are studying the acoustics/noise aspects of the aircraft.

They are "tufts" to visualise the airflow.
They are probably on top of the wing as well.

Usually they are more closely spaced.
In addition you need video recording to analyse the flow using that technique.

EK seems to be making a move to switch some or most of their 777X order to Dreamliners. I'm concerned with COVID ravaging the airline industry and airlines rethinking their orders, that the 777X will become a relic before it gets certified and that corporate will scrap the program. NOBODY wants widebody aircraft anymore, especially the size of the 777X.

Could be undergoing changes to test instrumentation and/or software changes. I vaguely recall in the A350 test campaign that one of the planes was offline for about 6 weeks I think whilst they made extensive changes.

If we’re lucky, maybe Boeing will make a behind the scenes documentary for release once the plane is certified, and discuss the various aspects of the testing campaign including significant changes that are made and why.

Yes there were times on the A350 campaign when they made instrumentation changes and I suppose fixes that meant the planes were offline for some time. This is to be expected. You cannot just rack up hours by flying every day. Flight testing takes times and is (or at least should be) a very measured process.

Any reason why we haven't seen a Boeing 777X painted in the red/maroon Boeing house livery? All renders had the 777X in the red house livery but we are only seeing the test aircraft in the blue (blue angel) and white (white angel) Boeing house liveries...

Has anyone got a list of 777X test aircraft regos and production numbers to keep track of? Much appreciated :)

The house livery was from the red/maroon to the blue awhile back. They wanted to standardize the Boeing livery.

Pretty sure blue is now the official "house colors", with Sunrise Red only being used on the 747-8 Intercontinental.
