PHOTOS: The ANA 787 runs but it still does not fly

Just how frustrating must it be for All Nippon Airways? They have been waiting for their Boeing 787 for a long while, and they must hold on even longer.

The ANA public relations team released these photos yesterday of aircraft No 2, which is used for flight tests, during taxi tests at Boeing facilities.

“We understand the need to make the best and safest aircraft possible and appreciate that delays due to engineering issues of the current nature must be solved in order to move forward and achieve this. However, as launch customer and future operator of the 787, the length of this further delay is a source of great dismay, not to say frustration,” said ANA.

Dismay and frustration? You don’t say. Those sentiments probably extend to everyone in the industry, except maybe their competitors. There will be a lot of cold sake flowing in Tokyo when the aircraft finally flies. Heck, I’ll have some as well. Not that I need the excuse.
