Easily the best looking airliner around. And I'm British, so should be supporting the other team, but you win!

And, your display was much better and more dynamic.

Ross (Bellevue, Washington):

What a bird! Have a great air show.

Abdul Qaboos:


Looks very reminiscent of the flight by the 787-8 at the show two years ago.

I hope the 787-10 can participate too when it is flying in 2018.

Thank you for sharing these images Randy.

Hi Randy, For a Kiwi who used to work for Air New Zealand when they first received the B747's and B767's it makes me proud and envious at the same time. The 787 is a beautiful aircraft and I enjoyed my contact with Boeing as a Systems Defect investigator. Keep up the great shots. Is there any video? rgds

T.Rennie (Wellington,NZ.):

What a beautiful bird,very slick, like the -8,now the -9,soon-10.Randy it would be nice to see the 747-8 on flying display at the airshow,just to show the a3s shes still the best looking airplane thats still flying today.

RobH (Springfield, MO):

Hands-down the second sexiest airplane in commercial aviation, right behind the 777 with those gorgeously-massive engines.

Norman Garza (Long Beach, CA):

Quite a performance on that takeoff. The length to span ratio looks great and the range is what airlines want, a great competitor to the now launched A330-800/900NEO.

Thiagarajan K Rengasamy (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia):

A fantastic plane. Wish Boeing a successful show at Farnborough.

Dick Eastaugh (Portugal):
