Default uh oh....manilaplane missing....

Well its been over a month since we have heard or had any updates from this phenomenon... ironically at the same time another real life 777 is missing too. (not comparing the two)..Has the novelty of posting on DAC worn off?..

My guess is the Dacer's scared you off as you were inundated with lots of pm's and emails for requests for a plane someone flew on as a kid and wants it by xmas and it got overwhelming!

Anyway wherever you are it was a great ride hope to hear from you soon, in the meantime we do have our Brad Shinn to hold us over

Ah! Sorry guys! I've been trying to get my **** together to post something on here (I also have some pics from the historic flight museum and Seattle), but unfortunately I came home and started my part-time work the very next day so I'm waiting for a bit of free time to sort everything out and write up an account of my experiences for you all.

BUT, yes, in a nutshell, I felt incredibly grateful and lucky—what a tour! And most importantly, it looks like the model will end up at the Future of Flight museum when done, at least for a good chunk of time

welcome back..I hope that whoever you are working for part time they appreciate your talents!! Thought you got scared off by all the experts giving advice and requests for a model..

Its incredible news that your plane will wind up in the Boeing museum..well earned and well deserved, if not there at least the Smithsonian!

Well deserved - and I agree - either there or the Smithsonian is where it belongs, so many people can share in the wonder.

Really fantastic photos from the Boeing Everett factory !

Well done for your Boeing 777-300ER to be displayed in the Future of Flight museum.

This model will be a national treasure.

HUGE congrats on your tour and the FoF museum gig ... hopefully it will be rotated around the various museums in that area ... obviously the Future of Flight is a great start, but there's also the Museum of Flight (non-Boeing) near SeaTac which could be another great venue for your incredible model.

Looking forward to hearing more from ya ... and CONGRATS again!
