Paine Field December 18

ANA JA784A first flight.

Static pressure cone installed on 747-8 N747EX.

Static pressure cone installed on N787EX. A selcal check (BQ-GM) was conducted with Boeing Everett Radio in the morning. At 6:00 PM Mike Carriker began a simulated 100 knot RTO on RWY 16R and takeoff on 34L.


  1. Hello! THanks for another update! I was wondering if there is any news on when the N787EX might be going for it's first flight.

  2. I believe it was planned on the 22 of Dec. But is this confirmed? I missed ZA001's flight. Would be nice if I can catch ZA002's 1st flight!

  3. Thanks for the update. :o) Too bad ZA001 is now at BFI (we can't see what's happening). Does anyone know if a flight testing schedule is posted anywhere?
