Boeing 7 - Series Aircraft Get Together

Amid all the 787 roll-out hoopla, perhaps the coolest event went unnoticed. On Saturday night, Boeing had all of the 787 airline representatives at an event at the Museum of Flight. At 7:07 PM, an Omega Air Refueling Services 707 landed in front of the crowd (after taking off from Paine Field in Everrett). At 7:17, an AirTran 717 landed. This continued until 8:17 when an Air France 777-300ER landed. In the end, the 707, 717, 727, 737, 747, 757, 767, and 777 were lined up nose-to-tail on the taxiway. It is the first time Boeing has had every 7-series airplane in the same place (not counting the 787, which couldn't make the flight, of course)

Yeah, I was just looking...200-300 passengers depending on configuration.
New light weight composite material....very interesting.

Too bad Boeing didn't support McDonnell Douglas when they bought them out-while I was working there, or I might still be working there.

Yeah, but Long Beach is down to nothing. I have a friend still there, with 20 yrs and he's about to get laid off.

At one point there were over 60k employees in Long Beach....now it's something like 8k. But, that's the nature of the beast with Aerospace.

YA THINK???

Never gets old watching the air france 777 and delta/song 767's power past me at work. When they power into the gates and after being pushed back, you can see debris getting tossed a couple football fields length behind them.
That's power.

Also get to watch them take off which is pretty sweet, talk about a top end rush. They start slow slow slow and then they haul ass in a way that F1 cars, turbo busas and your uncle ronnies camaro can't touch.
