In a surprise flight, ZA002, the 2nd test 787-8 was flown to Davis Monthan Air Force Base where it will be turned over to the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tuscon, Az.
The aircraft accumulated over 960 flight hours over 300 flights in support of flight testing and certification of the 787-8. After it had completed these tasks Boeing stored the aircraft in Palmdale, Ca. until the flight today to Arizona.
ZA002 first flew on Dec. 22, 2009, one week after the maiden flight of sistership ZA001. It had suffered an in flight fire on November 9, 2010 due to a piece of solder in a power distribution panel had caused a short circuit. The aircraft landed safely in Texas without any injuries but this fire and the subsequent investigation and required fixes set back the 787 deliveries by 6 months.
