787s resume test flights

Boeing resumed 787 test flights yesterday with ZA002 and ZA003 both flying. ZA003 flew from Pinal Airpark in Marana, Az to Boeing Field while ZA002 conducted what appears to be a regular test flight between Boeing Field and Moses Lake, Wa.

Because these two airplanes has resumed flight doesn't necessarily mean that they don't need rework. Boeing may have cleared the aircraft to fly but under certain operating restrictions that would not add stress to the horizontal stabilizer. I'm still awaiting word on weather any of the test flight airplanes need rework or not.

Dominic Gates broke the story on Saturday of the return to flight of the two 787s.
