Thought I'd pass this along. Sounds interesting. I wonder if this is also a first for a web-based first flight following?
The Boeing Company is proud to announce that the window for first flight is planned to open at 10 a.m. on December 15. The first flight will occur from Paine Field in Everett, Wash. This date is dependent upon final internal reviews, taxi test and receiving the final experimental ticket from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration. We’d like to invite you to view this achievement via the World Wide Web. Our Web site will present a live broadcast of the takeoff, landing and post-flight press conference. You can access this site at www.boeing.com or www.newairplane.com.
The Web presentation will begin as the airplane starts to taxi to the runway.
A Boeing host will set the stage for takeoff. After the airplane leaves the ground, the Web site will carry live updates on flight status. The flight may last as long as three to five hours, so you will probably want to check back often. As the airplane prepares to land, the Boeing host will return and the landing and press conference will be carried live.
Please note that first flights are dynamic in nature and issues such as poor weather may affect timing. Please check the Web site for updates. We hope that you will join us in celebrating the first flight of Boeing’s most advanced commercial airplane.
