It has been a long while since I have made a new post highlighting the many airline liveries we have now seen on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. These are all the liveries we have physically seen on the Dreamliner, so no computer composite images here:
We got to see United’s livery on the 787 for the first time yesterday. Image from United’s livestream.

The first Boeing 787 Dreamliner for Royal Air Maroc is out on Boeing's Paine Field flight line, in Everett, on Friday April 23, 2010. (Joshua Trujillo, Seattlepi.com)
It is a Boeing 787 blog-day today!
On Friday, the 17th Boeing 787 Dreamliner made it’s way out of the paint hangar. Due to not having my camera and short on time, I wasn’t able to get up to Paine Field myself to take a look, but luckily the Seattle PI did get a photographer out there.
We have seen the Boeing 787 “full livery”, the Boeing 787 “light livery”, the All Nippon Airways Livery, and now the Royal Air Maroc livery.
There are also two all-white Boeing 787’s (photo from @ImperfectSense) sitting out on the line for LAN. Some think they might be willing to paint them in a special livery, but will have to wait to find that out.
Two more photos of the RAM Boeing 787 by @ImperfectSense: First + Second.
Also check out the other great pictures that Josh Trujillo took while at Paine Field on Friday.

CN-RNT Royal Air Maroc Boeing 767 showing the damages after a hard landing. Click for Larger.
Wandering around on Airliners.net, I found the first pictures I have seen of Royal Air Maroc’s Boeing 767-300 which had a hard landing back in April 2009. The aircraft was cleared to land at JFK (flying from Morocco).
After the landing there was no obvious damage to the plane and it was set up for the return flight. Then the flight crew noticed the damage during the walk-around and it is expected to cost up to $10 million to repair the damaged plane. It is currently thought that the incident was caused by wake turbulence.
It is scary to think what might have happened if the plane would have taken off without the damages found. And to think this damage was found in the dark during the walk-around! That must have been one hard landing for everyone aboard for sure.
