So one of the 787 factories is at the local aerodrome, CHS, I was up there last weekend and there were 5 or 6 new planes sitting out by the big factory hangar waiting for delivery. They are also expanding the factory (its only 2-3yo now) to build the -10 variant. There were 4 of the fat 747 "Dreamlifters" sitting on the ramp that they use to haul fuselage sections back and forth across the country to Seattle, not sure if they are made here then sent there or vice versa, but it kinda cool seeing those things flying around. I have seen some of the 787s flying around too, they are quite pretty in flight, but never any performance flying. Maybe we should get them to do an airshow here and show off that kind of flying?

CHS is also an Air Force base, a whole herd of C-17s is based here, those things are huge. A lot of time they fly over my estancia on their way back from the Lands of Sand, sometimes 3 or 4 together.

I was thinking that the 787 I was on the other day took off kind of
steeply, or steeper than the smaller regional jets (737 or A320) I usually
fly on but nothing like that!
