Apparently this one doesn't have the real interior on it.

Nice going, Boeing.





What's the story on the serrated trailing edges on the bypass shrouds?

Reduced drag?

They just explained that it reduces noise.

Congrats, Jinxie

Is that maybe just a wee wobble on the takeoff?



Love the swoopy wings. Great to see it take flight.

Are the wings supposed to flex that much?
(I figure they know a lot more about composites, and engineering, than I do... it just looks excessive to me...)

They look longer than normal.

Maybe that's why?

Have you seen airplanes flying around with the "winglets" on them? Well supposedly, this wing curls up so much that the whole wing is considered a winglet. No joke! I imagine the wing flex will be even more pronounced when they start doing max takeoff weight tests.

You can see at the very tips of the wings they curl up slightly instead of taking an abrupt angle like regular winglets.

I suppose they know what they're doing...
I remember the old Voyager had some serious wing flex, when it did it's flights...
I guess this is the same...
I just wonder how that much flex the wing will withstand, before it breaks...
I bet it's hardly loaded down right now, for it's first flight.
I'm sure they'd eventually work their way up to max gross takeoff weight.
It'll be interesting to see what it can do, that's for sure.
