Flying the 787, litterally

On February 9, 2012, a Boeing 787 left Boeing Field in Seattle for an ETOPS endurance test. 19 hours later, it landed back. So far, nothing unusual.

But, along the way, it flew in such a way that as seen from a flight tracking software, it wrote the numbers “787” and drew a Boeing logo in the sky.

Kudos to those who plotted such a creative flight plan and to the air traffic controllers across the Northwestern part of the United States for cooperating.

And to think that this isn’t the first time Boeing does this… See this article from the Airline Reporter for details.
