Saw it land at BOS Sunday morning. Very overcast (OVC003) but very cool to see it pop out of the clouds. Only problem, it's so quiet the event was, well, a bit uneventful! Cool to see though.

Also the first time there is a non-stop flight to Asia from Boston.

Glad to see them flying to the US. I heard JAL will start 787 to San Diego next.

I tracked it directly over my house via Mode S on Tuesday. Unfortunately the sky was overcast at the time so I could not observe it directly.

I saw 787 flying in Dubai Air Show in 2011. It was a great sight. Beautiful Plane it is.... Good job Boeing...

Would love to see one of these beauties come to where I live. However, I don't picture anyone doing 787 service out of KOMA ever (not when most of the traffic these days seems to be B737s, MD80-class or assorted RJ's). Only way we'll see a 787 here is either a special charter or some sort of publicity tour (and don't hold your breath on that for KOMA, either).

It's great news to hear of the 787 finally doing a commercial flight to the US. I would love to see it fly in and out of Denver (KDEN) soon. I can't wait for that to start happening.
