The Boeing 787-8 Arrives at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh

The Boeing 787-8 Takes Off at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011Boeing brought the Boeing 787-8 into EAA AirVenture Oshkosh this morning a little after 9a. The airline was here ontime, but EAA had to move the B29 and a KC-135 to make room for it, hence the delay.

It was a beautiful thing it held east of the field for about 10 minutes. It then did a fly-by making a right turn then landed on runway 36 and taxiing to show center. At about 11:00a, they started to allow us to board; we made our way in by 12:30 or so to our delight.
The airplane N787BA (ZA001) the first 787 built had test equipment from nose to tail. Much different from when I saw the airplane at the Farnborough Airshow in 2010.

Here are some pictures from the appearance of the Boeing 787-8 at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2011:
