Start of 747-8 taxi tests on tap for 2/6/10; ZA001 return to flight test delayed

According to Guy Norris' latest blog post, RC501, the first 747-8, will start taxi tests tomorrow morning (Feb. 6, 2010) with these tests running through Sunday with a rejected take off test. Boeing plans to conduct the first flight on Monday, Feb. 8, 2010 at 10AM PST. I'll be blogging the event live on that day.

Guy also said that ZA002 conducted more stall tests yesterday, ZA001 is still on the ground due to unspecified problems which hopefully should be resolved today allowing the aircraft to rejoin the test program.
