B787 First Flight Tomorrow
« on: December 14, 2009, 10:35:18 AM »
Finally (well at the moment anyway) the 787 takes to the skies tomorrow at 1800z...

http://www.boeing.com/

Are there any Radar Boxes sharing data from that area? (Will it be ADSB anyway on a test flight?)

Good Morning;
    Depending on where they go, I might be able to pick it up.  I have an alert configured to send to my work address and will post here if it happens for me.  I pick up most Boeing test flights when they fly up the coast and around the Olympic Peninsula.  My logs are posted to the MODE_S group.

From what I have heard the first flight may be delayed due to weather.  Essentially it has to be VFR conditions with a dry runway and light winds for the first flight.  I don't think the Seattle weather is going to meet those conditions for this much of this week.

I am currently traveling on business and therefore my RB in Seattle is shutdown but I will be broadcasting on the net from the Seattle area 24/7 by this coming weekend.  There are actually six (6) different 787 aircraft that will be conducting initial flight tests in the coming months so you should see quite a bit of 787 flight activity.
