“riding off into the sunset our 787-10 #dreamliner
delivers a show stopper during takeoff performance testing at @edwardsairforcebase
in california. the flight-test team put the airplane through normal and “abuse” takeoffs – situations in which the pilot takes off at speeds faster and slower than the soon to be certified takeoff speeds. “we want to make sure there’s plenty of margin in the airplane’s capability to fly away safely,” said joseph paunicka, boeing test director for the #787
-10. after faa certification is achieved, the aircraft will be ready for its first delivery in the first half of 2018.
