Is there anything official from Boeing on this yet? Seems awfully late to have said nothing if it's going to happen tomorrow.
It’s on the Boeing employees news. 10am. Several of us have even posted who the pilots will be.
Thanks. Any word on an official live stream?
Or even unofficial streams i.e. local TV stations showing aerial views?
I doubt there will be any public stream. Most media contacts I know where not even invited. Like what was mentioned above, this will most likely be an internal event with video and pictures released post flight. Similar to the roll out of the -10
Thanks for your nice photos and other info you have posted to a.net.
So, any hint if the local TV stations are going to get helos up to cover the event?
We finally have a twin engine 707 LOL
Aren't the fuselage lengths the same?
I think that's a fair comment. I did a double-take once when I saw a photo of a -900 in bad lighting, I was thinking it was a two-engine 707.
If you see them alongside each other ( https://i.imgur.com/OEqreME.jpeg
shows a P-8 refueling from a KC-135 ) you can see the main difference is the size of the wing. 707 had enough room for enough fuel to feed four first-generation turbofans doing TATL routes. Wiki says 23,855 USgal for 707-320 and 7,837 US gal for 737-900ER so 3x the fuel.
Thanks, these are awesome photos!
