Good day, sunshine

The arrivals keep coming at Le Bourget in advance of the Paris Air Show. A brand new 777-300ER for China Airlines touched down Saturday morning.

My colleagues who are already in Paris tell me that brilliant sunshine greeted the airplane.

This 777-300ER will be on static display at Le Bourget all next week. China Airlines currently operates five newly configured 777-300ERs on routes serving Hong Kong, Bangkok, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The airline is scheduled to receive five more in the next couple of years to support the launch of new European and North American routes.

The world awaits the show stopping Vietnam Airlines 787-9. Please, oh please get some pictures for me when it displays.Those five A-350 side-by-side fly-by's can't touch it. Or there is some song lyrics from the past that sings like that "Can't touch It" refrain. The world keeps talking about the now famous 787-9 rehearsal flight in Moses lake last week or so. Paris will thanking Boeing for the show stopper's arrival and the expanded ticket sales.

The sight of a 77W on a approach doesn't get any better!!

If an airplane is still doing flights at a prestigious airshow over ten years after it has entered (and still getting new orders from new airlines) service it can be best said that it has done well.
