Looks awesome!

I'm a bit annoyed however that, the last 27 minutes were spent blabbing, while 2 minutes 30 secs was on viewing the plane.

I would have prefered at least the last 10-15 minutes getting whole views of the back of the plane, tail section, engine, landing gear, etc.

All they showed was the nose and front of the engine...wtf?

Beautiful airplane. After years of seeing all the renderings, it's great to see the real airplane over on the webcast. Congrats to all the Boeing employees making this a reality. Now I just can't wait to see the airplane in person!

I think it's a conspiracy....My BT Broadband connection dropped out just as it was about to be revealed and then came back online as the ceremony concluded.

I therefore only got to see everyone's back-slapping and not the damned plane itself!!!

What a great rollout. The recongnition of every little tid bit including the goverment officials irrated me but it was a FANTASTIC rollout! Breathless and speachless when she came into view are good wordd. Mind you I watched it via live feed. A few freinds were there for it live though.

It looks great!!!! I absolutely love the nose profile.

I can get a better sense of it's proportions now from the people walking around it. It appears to look like a taller, sleeker 767 or a wider 757.
