Already legendary

I’m just back from Dublin, Ireland where the 787 Dream Tour made another impressive stop.


Hello from Ireland!

I’ve used many adjectives over the years to describe the 787. Now there’s a new one to add to the list - legendary.

During a ceremony in Beverly Hills, the Living Legends of Aviation presented the 787 Dream Team with a special award— the very first Aircraft of Legend award. While the group has honored the likes of everyone from Buzz Aldrin to Morgan Freeman, this is the first time an airplane itself has been recognized.


Honored to receive the first Aircraft of Legend award.

The Legends event is produced by the Kiddie Hawk Air Academy, which introduces children to flight with the Kiddie Hawk Trainer.

It’s quite an honor for us and a real tribute to the thousands of men and women at Boeing and our partners around the world who’ve created an airplane that is already legendary.

Hello Randy

I'd like to thank you and your colleagues at Boeing for allowing us at Aer Lingus to see inside the wonderful new Boeing 787 Dreamliner on it's arrival in Hangar 6 in Dublin last Wednesday night - The departure of the Dreamliner from Dublin Airport today attracted a huge crowd around the airport's perimeter roads!

Best Regards

In the link below you will find a free ads for the 787.
The ads has been in Montréal subway (métro) since last week.

why is Randy's Journal so very much hidden on the Boeing Website: - - Randy's Journal...

Mr. Randy Tinseth might be more subjective than the official Boeing News Releases - but I think it is just this emotional content that Boeing enthousiasts are looking for: Boeing as a social event...

Norman (Long Beach,CA):

The Boeing 787 would look great in the Aer Lingus livery.

Ethan Stowell (Toronto):

Congratulations on this latest award that is well deserved. I agree some shamrocks would look great on the 787.

You deserve the laurels and more. Congratulations again for a job well done.
