Going a bit out of sequence here, since I’m still finishing up my post on the meal service for the NRT-BOS leg of my trip. Here’s a full list of Dreamliner posts from the last week:

The majority of what I’ve written about the 787 involves my experiences in the plane. But, there were a whole bunch of people watching from afar. This was a truly memorable experience in US aviation history.
We talked a few times while he was up on the roof (enjoying a bit of rain, mind you). I’m sure it was pretty cool watching it from afar. I definitely wish I could have done both. He definitely captured the historical nature of the moment.
The end of the video, where the plume of rain is shooting up from the rear tires was pretty awesome looking.
A short youtube video showing the wet takeoff. (for the bit more impatient).
