A short amazing career

aviation history, Flying Is Fun, photo


Still 15 days from its second birthday, Boeing 787 airframe ZA001 will fly today to Palmdale California ending a short life as a test aircraft.  The next time she flies (which could take quite a long time) will probably be back to Seattle to a permanent home at the Seattle Museum of Flight.

I took this picture at Oshkosh 2011 when 001 made a one day visit to see tens of thousands of adoring fans.  One of the huge highlights of my first trip to AirVenture.
