Boeing 787 Dreamliner First Test Flight

After multiple delays over the past year or so, the Boeing 787 Dreamliner finally took off today for its inaugural test flight.  A friend of mine and I headed to Boeing’s Future of Flight which overlooks the runway at Paine Field and snapped some shots of the Dreamliner’s first take off.
