I think this is the first 787-10 to ever land at PAE, unless it has done so previously.

Re: 787 Production/Delivery Thread - Part 43

Quietly in the August O&D update from Boeing, 8x GE-powered 789s listed as Unidentified have been converted to 8x [no-engine] 7810s listed as Unidentified. Let the speculation begin... I have the 53 previously yet to be delivered GE-powered Unidentified 789s as belonging to: (21) Hainan, (15) C...

Possibly a stupid question I have here, but here it goes: While I understand the static wicks on the wings discharge the lightening energy (correct me if I'm wrong), I'm amazed how how the fuel doesn't somehow combust when the plane is struck. Can anyone shed any additional light on how the fuel is...

Those engines look really low

You mean like all other aircraft that have engines hanging off the wings?


Aircraft should be landing soon.

That was odd. The gear cycle started but froze, then the doors shut again. It's flying with gear down at the moment.

Its not really odd, I don't remember exactly why it does that, but the 787-9 does it as well.
