  1. Hi Matt - do you know any more about the mural being removed? Is it just the 787 one or the full mural? Any news about possible replacements?

    1. They are re-doing the mural for the 100th anniversary coming up in 2016

  2. Is anyone aware of the (long) list of items examined and tested during a typical B1 flight? My information suggests that most (complete) B1s run 2.0 - 2.5 hours. I'm thinking that this time must be extremely busy for all aboard. Does anyone have a list of what systems are checked and how the proof checks are done? Thanks.
