787 Test Airplane In California?

Wed Mar 10, 2010 5:16 am

WOW  Wow! it looks like the 787 Dreamliner will be testing out of Victorville, California for about 3 weeks. I live like 45 miles south of Victorville, I think I will have plans to go see the airplane in the sky and on the ground. Cool, check out the link for those Californians.

Guess again. We have leased our hangar to Boeing for (what was stated) a year. Also, they (my company-not Boeing) told us that multiple airframes would show. They have made a move of equipment and people to VCV. It is not 3 weeks! I was working in our hangar today, and was told to complete everything this evening, and get out of the hangar ASAP because they want it unencumbered.

Were any A2A photos taken during these tests? Some shots taken over the Big Sur coastline just north of Vandenburg would be beautiful...
