I saw in the news the 787 Dreamliner is landing at Regan today and will be on display for a few days. Anyone taking pictures ?

Where is there an airport named after former Secretary of Treasury and WH Chief of Staff Don Regan?

I'm surprised the Reagan runway could handle a plane that size.

787 is not that big.



About the size of a 767.

The 787 is about the same size as a 767. Delta has been flying 767s out of National since 2008.

I think it can land at National Airport but would come to rest in the Potomac.

The 777 is big, and the 787 is a bigger number so it must be a bigger plane.

Naturally! 787 > 380, too, so clearly the 787 is the largest passenger plane on earth!

That was just prep for a few special flights for the inauguration. They have not been "flying 767s out of National since 2008".

Looks like English just isn't your thing. Look at the video around 4:10. When all the wheels are up, that is called "flying." That event took place in 2008 and it was at Reagan National. No need to thank me.

Pot/Kettle!

Looks like the good ol' present perfect continuous tense tripped you up. (Check it out on Google, and be amazed.)

Not a native speaker, are you? It's okay -- I don't hold it against you. I don't discriminate. I'm a big supporter of diversity here in Fairfax.

I think you'd be amazed. Check it out, verify it and see how wrong you are. Don't worry, we are used to it by now.

Hey, at least you are coming around to the fact that you were wrong about the 767. You'll come around to this one soon enough.

*nod* The Delta 767-300 operated at DCA only for Obama's Inauguration with 4 flights...and not before, except for the live proving flight the previous December 8th.

The main reason widebodies are not approved for regular use at DCA is that the taxiways (Kilo and Juliet) are too close to each other and traffic on the opposing taxiway has to be held until the widebody aircraft enters the runway hold point.

You guys will have to excuse Howard -- he's had a thing for me for a while now. He's finding out the hard way that hate and love aren't opposites after all. :-)

For a while? English troubles again.

Yes, I've lusted after Kilton since 1:00 this afternoon. Can you really blame me? He does seem dreamy, doesn't he?

Boeing once again, has shown why it is far ahead of Airbus, Sukhoi, and any other manufacturer in the industry again. This lightweight composite material, and its efficiency overall compared to others in the same class, are going to make Boeing once again another very well sold airplane. Way to go to the folks in Washington State!

Thanks for some of the interesting facts about a 767 at national. Hopefully we get some pictures this week. Kinda sad they don't open it up to a public view. Anyone know if she could operate from there with a normal passenger and fuel load ?

Not sure of the size comparison, but when it hit the fan during/after a snow storm, we landed in a 757 at DCA.
