747-8I and 787-8 together at last

Boeing Photo


How's this for the ultimate photo in aviation geekdom, the 787-8 and the 747-8I flying in formation together while in test flight during this past weekend? Boeing photographed the pair together and will release it as a poster for purchase.

Nope looks too real for a model. It's the real deal.

Al may be referring to Monty Python's movie "Holy Grail" and the excitement of the knights' arrival at the Castle Camelot. One of their assistants notes that it is only a model....

The 787 looks so small

The wing sweep of the 787 is probably its most elegant exterior feature. Quite fetching.

The elegant wing sweep of the Dreamliner is one of its more striking features. Quite fetching really.

What cool looking aircraft!

Let's hope Boeing puts Airbus out of business with these modern aircraft!
