Pinch Me, I'm Dreaming

For those of you who thought I went all the way to Seattle with just a cell phone camera, you'll be happily mistaken. I just got off a red-eye from SEA. This is my first chance to actually take a second (breathe) and put up a few preliminary photos. There are A LOT of them, and they will be coming out over the next week or so. Please enjoy, and know there's more where these came from. All shots are currently unedited and will be fixed later in the week.

Thank you to all of those who made this moment possible.

Jon,
Great pics, I hope you got some great oics of the airline logos on the fuselage. Apparently there are logos on the plane of customers who have yet to announce and I'm not talking just about Qatar. It would be great to get a more detailed look at whose logos are on ZA001.

Thanks for the continual updates throughout the last few weeks/months. It must have been unbeleiveable to have been there and I look forward to seeing all your photos over the next few days :)

Hi Jon. Congratulations on bringing back such superb images of the 787. What an experience for you - and for us, thanks to your sharing it here.

I can't wait to see more, and hope your jet lag wears off soon!

Jon,
Did you notice the flight deck windows DON'T open. Pilots will go through a hatch similiar to the 747 in the event of emergency.

Jon,
Is Boeing inviting you back in September for the first flight?

Boeing didn't invite him to this. They gave him a pass to Qwest field....apparently he has friends in high places that got him to the real event.

In the photos the scale of those engines looks staggering - is it the same in person?

Jon,
I am most interested in getting an
update on the follow-on birds.
Your site is the ONLY one I've seen that has the progress for the Static Test Frames and ZA002-ZA008
I LOVE ZA001, but I can't wait to see the progress of all of them.
Great site, and thanks for all the
updates.

Great coverage! Looking forward to see her at SKBO for Avianca. Furthermore, hope to ride one some day.

This is a great site. I borrowed your youtube.com dreamliner video for my own blog article on the debut of the 787!

Great stuff.

Jon, Thank you for all of your efforts with this blog. I am sure that people from all over the world have been enthralled at watching it all come together through your eyes. I would have loved to have been there myself but I am so pleased that you were and that (again) you shared this wonderful event with all of us!

The nose and front section of the 787 looks like to old Dehaviland Comet
