Greetings from Everett! Taxi tests for the 787 are on the agenda for this morning and I'm gong to be trying things a bit differently. UStream recently became available for the iPhone and this seems like a perfect opportunity to test it out. The broadcast above won't be streaming the entire time, but it will be on periodically throughout the day. Follow me on twitter for notifications when I'm broadcasting live and use the hashtag #787TT for today's tests.
I've also timed this post to remain at the top of the page throughout the day, so look for incremental updates below this post and on Twitter. You can also log-in to twitter using the social stream below to follow developments.
The aircraft is currently being prepared for its testing today and crews have been in pre-test briefings starting at 6:30 this morning. The runway is being swept for any FOD (foreign object debris) that could damage ZA001 during its taxi runs. Stay tuned, it's going to be a busy day!
