Video not working, as other members already stated.

Anyway, I cannot wait until the day I fly on the 787.

First 787 flight a success? Did someone expect a failure?

Too bad M1 missed this.

I had to check the date to make sure this wasn't an April Fools joke or other type of trolling. It's been how many years now? Regardless, congrats to Boeing on this milestone in aviation history.

I might have missed it in person, but NOT in spirit ... but dog gone ... could the "787" font on the side of that fuselage have been any UGLIER??? For cryin' shame they ruined the look of the plane with that lettering ... PUTRID!!!
