Above is video I took of the Boeing 787 going nose up on a taxi test. If you have sound you can hear those amazing thrust reversers in action. I was only there for about 30min, but I was there during the best 30 minutes. We had a great view off the Future of Flight’s Strato Deck. This aircraft looks amazing moving and she looks like she wants to take to the sky. Between each pass, “street” sweepers would come on the runway and clean it off. There were dozens of Boeing workers near the runway in bright yellow vests. It was surreal seeing a Boeing 737 doing touch and goes and watching other private planes land while the Boeing 787 wait to get onto the runway. I wanted to see more, but it was ending as a storm front was heading in, which was good. It was only about 30 degrees outside, but a gorgeous day to see a gorgeous plane!

* Seattle PI has some AMAZING photos of the plane
* I took some of my own, not as amazing, but mine
* @alpine_swift got some pictures before I got there, and a video of the Dreamlifter taking off.
* Very interesting video done by Boeing showing the prep work for in the inside of the Boeing 787 before its taxi test today.
* KPAE Paine Field Blogger Matt Cawby got a ground level view video of the nose up
* 138 pictures and 2 videos from Flight Blogger

I will be adding to the list as more people publish their pictures + videos
