The world-wide fleet of Boeing 787 might be grounded, but Boeing flew one Dreamliners from Dallas/Forth Worth, Texas to Everett. The ferry-flight only contained Boeing employees and was used to run a test on the lithium-ion batteries. During the flight, the battery had to be closely monitored and no issues were reported.
Some in the media are reporting the aircraft was in Texas for painting. Maybe it could been having touch up work, but the aircraft, B2727, has been painted since late 2012.
The FAA approved this ferry-flight, but has not approved future test flights. Hopefully we will be able to see more 787 test flights in the air soon. See video of the landing on KING5.
Possibly in Texas getting interior mods.
Cool livery. To the best of my knowledge this plane hasn’t actually been delivered yet though, so technically it’s a Boeing owned 787 that just happens to be painted in China Southern colours.
i really like the livery
Sorry but you got this wrong. The aircraft was not flown from Dallas/Forth Worth, Texas, if was flown from Meacham Field, Fort Worth Texas. It was never in Dallas.
a380 is better 787 has too many problems
i love the livery
I love that so many of the carries that plan to get are updating their liveries. It is just a beautiful thing.
