The fifth Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight test airplane test registration N787FT has been painted in a special Boeing livery which is very different from the traditional blue-and-white Boeing Commercial Airplanes livery seen on the first 787 flight test airplane. The simplified paint scheme will be applied to the three remaining unpainted flight test airplanes (Nos. 3, 4 and 6). Airplane No. 2 has been painted in the colours of launch customer All Nippon Airways of Japan.
The modified livery, which saves time and expense compared to the full Boeing livery, will remain on the airplane until the flight test program is completed and it is refurbished and delivered to a customer.
Before you get down to the grind of the upcoming week another light hearted picture and this one is from Bangkok, Thailand. Bird in Thai curry anyone?
