First Flights in 2009

What a year it has been for first flights! Amongst other first flights we had the EC175, G250, G650, A400M (finally), and Boeing 787 (finally!)

For more information of these historical events, check out our coverage here:

Flightglobal also reported on the second Boeing 787′s first flight a few days following the first flight of the same aircraft type.

Airbus’ A330-200F touched down after successful maiden flight… 

The Bombardier CRJ successfully completed its first flight in July…

A battery-powered aircraft made its first flight at the Paris Air Show…

Jet-powered Predator C’s makes first flight and gains funding.

Early 2010 will see the Boeing 747-8F take to the skies for its first flight. Not long to wait now. It’s getting us excited.
