You can feel the energy building in the Seattle area for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner’s first flight. Even though Boeing is stating they are giving a week’s notice for the first flight, I am not so sure that’s true. Things seem to be in motion and I wouldn’t be surprised if the 787 will take flight sometime next week.

If you are planning to be in the Seattle area, you have the opportunity to get VIP tickets to view the first flight from the Future of Flight’s Strato Deck. There will be food, drinks, some very interesting people and of course the best view of the Boeing 787 taking flight! Tickets are only $250.00, which is a DEAL for this once in a lifetime event. Check out their website for more information and how to get your tickets. Hurry, no one knows when the first flight will happen!

This is not nearly as cool as I was hoping — The title implied that you might get to fly on the aircraft itself.

Normally there are a lot of instruments and barrels of water on the first flights. Probably wouldn’t be as exciting as seeing it on the ground 🙂

I have helped build the DREAM(LINER for Three years now, from Everett to Wichita Ks. I would love a chance to see the First Flight. Lets hope for a cloud free day and a Safe Flight for our Test Pilots. And I’m not ashamed to ask for the LORDs Blessing on the entire 787 project

Oh yes. I think most people don’t realize how much there is left to do after the first flight before the plane can be delivered. There is still a lot that can go wrong. I just hope nothing else goes wrong!
