Wow! Boeing Model 40 And 787 Share The Sky!

(click pic to enlarge)

 An amazing event took place on May 8, 2010 as the only flying Boeing Model 40 flew in formation with Boeing's prototype 787 Dreamliner in the skies near Seattle.  This Boeing Model 40 was originally built in 1928 and was Boeing's first ever production commercial airplane.  This example was restored by Addison Pemberton from Spokane, Washington in 2008.  This formation flight represents the entire history of Boeing commercial aircraft... what a stunning sight to see! has more photos of the two aircraft together, and also a post on how the photo shoot was pulled together.

 It's extremely cool that Boeing saw fit to include this historic event in the schedule of 787 test flying, and I'm really, really hoping they'll find a way to give the #1 Dreamliner a few days rest in Wisconsin in late July.
