Nose wheel leaves the ground as N787BA completes the last taxi test of the day.
This is a great video. She is getting closer and closer to first flight.
Amazing job Matt. Awesome that you got to be so close. Did you put the radio in later or have it next the video camera?David
Matt;Thanks for the nose gear shot!!! I was on Jon's website and he had something called a video of it but could not see anything. Do you know what happened to the third 787 with engines? See a new ANA 787 where the test plan was a day or so ago. Your work is outstanding and thanks for sharing.Vincent
Matt,I love how you integrate the tower/787 audio. This is really fun to watch.ThanksScotty
During the test where they raised the nose wheel, they said that they only did 4 degrees and they were looking for 5 degrees. I wonder if that means anything? I wonder how close they could come to an "accidental" first flight? ;o)
Thanks for the great pictures and videos! Hope the weather remains that good for tomorrow.
It most be a amazing experience to be a pilot.
