The big news of the week was the first flight of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner which successfully took to the skies, albeit two and a half years later than anticipated.
The jet lifted off the tarmac to the sounds of excited whoops and cheers from spectators. Jon Ostrower's FlightBlogger was in his element as resident 787 expert, tweeting and streaming video live at the scene at Paine Field, Everett.
An AirSpace blogger Andrew Sieber posted in interesting piece with images and text about the chase planes that would be trailing the 787.
If you'd also like to have your own blog hosted by AirSpace, where it will be read by an audience of over 5,000 users, email Flightglobal's Community Editor Stuart Clarke.
On the Flightglobal archive, read the article "Flight in 1915" which is the result of asking people where they imagined the "position of flying in six years' time". M. Jules Bois volunteers a prediction for 100 years time suggesting that the "motor car will have gone completely out of fashion, but the bicycle, in a new form, will enable the rider to soar in mid-air".
See a bizarre an image of a puff of smoke which an AirSpace user has uploaded to AirSpace. Flyer1 seems disgruntled as he describes the image as a stealth Royal Air Force after the government has made their cuts. "Stealth technology by STINK Works....it has disappeared in a puff of smoke!"
