Dreamliner progress

BOEING is pressing on with the flight test programme for its new 787 Dreamliner aircraft, but when lead airline ANA will actually put the aircraft in service is anyone’s guess.  Five aircraft are currently flying, and four of these are nominally at least based away from Seattle.  Chosen locations for the intensive development operation include Edwards Air Force base in California, famous for its military work, Roswell, also in California where wet runway tests are taking place, and Keflavik Airport in Iceland for high-latitude and cold weather testing.  At the other extreme Yuma, Arizona, is being used for hot weather flights.  The 787 flight test fleet has conducted more than 1,650 hours of flying over more than 540 flights. www.boeing.com/commercial
