I have sent the email but no promises on the reply.

Someone (We know who) got called out on their smart ass comments about the upper beacon light flashing on the 777-9 first flight. In this forum on knowledgeable aviation enthusiasts, we knew we did not see that light flash... .......one and his comments to several members irked me and others to verify this. As fact turned out...he was wrong, so he wants to maintain his pride. We have to wait for the 777-9 chief pilot to reply (That is pending if the email was ever sent in the first place).....I can already sense the moderators getting an email to lock out this thread, especially since his "Ego" was hurt!!!!
