1st Boeing Dreamliner finally delivered.

"After 3 years, Boeing Dreamliner becomes reality"

"(Reuters) - Boeing's long-awaited dream machine became a commercial reality on Sunday when the lightweight plastic-composites 787 Dreamliner was formally delivered to its first Japanese customer."

"After three years, Boeing Dreamliner becomes a reality" - makes it sound like its been in development for just three years. However, it does have bidets on it! (at least the Japanese ones).

Yep the Lingle/O'Daniel's still run the hardware store. Skagway also has a new runway, the original is now the taxiway.



That's from this morning.. 3 of your old companies in one shot.. all the wings planes were out or I would have gotten them all. We ended up buying 3 of the Skag air planes after they shutdown. Having the Capstone sure is nice, takes alot of the stress out of going to Haines or Kake in January. The Chelton equipment we have is leaps and bounds of an improvement over the MX20 stuff that the Y-K Delta got.

Glacier Pilot; Thanks for that excellent JNU triad of history picture - Indeed, it is a small, small world. Out of curiosity if you've got the N number of the Skagway plane I'll look and see if I've flown it, I've flown all the Empire 42's & 72's, so that's covered, and the LAB Islander that used to be parked there, and one of the PA31's in the picture, too, and probably one of the 6's.

That's a true September SE picture, each day the snow will creep down and down and down.

That one's a 7GCAA but the school had a 7ECA as well.

They recently purchased a third Citabria (another 7ECA) as they're going to start using them for their private pilot program rather than the G1000-equipped Skyhawks. They're trying to promote some stick-and-rudder skills before introducing the fancy glass cockpit stuff.

Wish I had had the opportunity to train in conventional gear aircraft - I'd love to be in a partnership now with a Cub or Champ or something to fly low and slow.
