    You may all already know, but the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner will be making a low fly by in Derby tomorrow (Tuesday 20th). It will fly over the Rolls Royce works on Moor Lane / Victory Road, and then make its way across Pride Park and the Derby Cricket Ground on Notts Road. Will be at about 2000 ft (possibly lower at Rolls Royce), so should be quite a sight! Will be arriving in Derby between 5.15 and 5.30pm.

    Was there when the Airbus A380 flew over a few years back - now that was a sight to behold!!!

    I'll wait for the Boeing 797, I think. That will be a most unusual sight - if and when it happens. Smile

    (The 787 looks like any other airliner to me... but I'm not an aficionado!).

    Wow!!! That is awsome!!! Think I remember seeing something similar in one of my dads old National Geographic mags donkeys years ago! Would be amazing if that ever came off the drawing board . .

    Gerry - not much happens in Derby, so this is big news for us!! lol!!

    Well Boeing have already made a scale model [link: image removed - see terms and conditions], so one assumes they are fairly serious in their intent.

    reminds me of a balsa catapault launched flying model I made when I was a kid (when real planes had propellors and things like this appeared in the Eagle comic! Smile )

    It makes a lot of sense for Boeing to use the technology they learned when developing the B1 and B2 bombers.

    A stealth airliner eh - how would they know which gate it was parked at?Wink

    The B1 and B2 are not just stealthy. They have very clever aerodynamics and flight control systems.
