Paine Field December 1

RC556 Cathay Pacific Cargo B-LJF taxis to 34L for takeoff on a B1 flight.

B-LJF coming back from Grant County Airport.

An Ethiopian Airlines 787 was moved to the Alpha taxiway while some 787s were shuffled around Runway 11-29 this morning.

Boeing flightline. ANA 787 JA804A is at the fuel dock with engines installed.

British Airways 777 G-STBE returned from the Portland paint hangar this evening.


  1. excuse my noobishness....what is a B1 flight?

  2. Basil-

    It's the same thing as a first flight, although I don't know where the designation "B1" comes from.

    And for anyone else out there, what does it mean when when a plane is on a "customer flight" such as yesterday when I saw one of the 747-8s on a "customer flight" for Atlas Air?

  3. Would it be a customer taking it for a flight to check everything ect?
