A gorgeous weekend in Seattle was capped off by the 787-9 performing a flyover on the final day of the Seafair Festival. Boeing photographer Katie Lomax snapped these images as the airplane passed over Lake Washington.

It may not have been as impressive as the show at Farnboro but still amazing. Thanks Randy for sharing.

What a clear day and great picture of of the 787-9. I know I am going to see those 787s real soon at my local international airport at LAX. I would loved to have ride along in the cabin and see the lake from the very clear skies.

Didn't Tex Johnston perform a barrel roll over Lake Washington in a Dash 80 (B707 prototype) circa 1955? I would hope the B787 had greater structural integrity.

Now that the -9 is out, would it make sense to offer a -8 to match the -9's MTO weight, which would provide a range of 9.000+nm for extra long thin routes? It wouldn't seem to take much work to provide that capability. Perhaps after the -10?

Congratulations to Boeing for the total of 823 net orders so far this year!
Congratulations too to Boeing as United Airlines traded up a previous order for seven 787-8 Dreamliners for seven of the larger, more expensive 787-10s!
Peace and prosperous!
