Well, the plane rolled out on the planned date (07/08/07), and they have planned the first flight for September.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with using "unconventional" materials.  In WWII the brits made an oddball plane...out of wood.  I personally think its great that new materials are working their way into the airline market.

As for the lowering the cost of flying (commercially at least)...thats a joke.  Check the link in my sig (click on the picture) to see all about that.

Anyway, my traveling via airlines will greatly decrease as of 2 weeks from Thursday, and hopefully cease all together in a few years when I can purchase a nice plane.

Wow, your profile lists your date of birth as 22 July 1989, that means you've been flying for the USAF since you were 8 years old.  You must be some kind of prodigy. 

No, wait.  Prodigy is a different forumer.

I wouldn't call the Mosquito an 'oddball' plane- although yes, it was made out of wood. Awesome range and speed on it...

I think what he meant by "oddball", is the fact that it was made out of not just wood, lots of planes are made outta wood, but the Mosquito was made outta plywood. And the reason it is a success story for out of the ordinary aircraft materials is becasue it was such a good aircraft.

I would hope they would fly the plane around before putting it out.


I'm assuming they're referring to making the plane do a loop.

You mean barrel roll.

I don't think it's every plane but they did do it with the 707 when they first unveiled it.

A barrel roll? Are you sure? A plane of that size and desighn should not be able to do a barrel roll without tearing the wings off. I'm pretty sure they mean a test flight.

While the 787 may or may not have a great track record thus far (I haven't been following any story on it), Boeing officials won't let them ship a plane that may have glaring design or build defects. It will go through a rigorous test flight regimen like any other aircraft before Boeing or the FAA will certify it fit to fly.

A barrell roll is propably possible, however an aileron roll would most likely not be.

Once the new 787 comes to my airport, I am going to try to get a flight in it. I saw the computer animation on tv and it looked very modern and comfortable inside. Much wider seating too.

Actually, I just wanted an excuse to use the "prodigy" pun.*

*What can I say, I just like really bad puns. (If I ever get a strike it will probably be for really bad puns.)

P.S. Thanks USAF for giving me the opportunity to use it.
