Update (Monday, 3:16 p.m. PST): The complete answer to last week's Picture of the Week--which 106 people got--is the landing at the end of the maiden flight of Boeing's 787 Dreamliner , at Boeing Field, in Seattle, Wash., on December 15, 2009. For this challenge, I required more specificity than I usually do because I asked why the picture mattered. So while more than 200 people knew it was Boeing's Dreamliner, and even where the picture was taken, many didn't correctly identify the significance of the initial flight. Thanks to all who played, and to everyone, please come back on Thursday for this week's challenge.

That's a nice-looking airplane isn't it? But what's it doing there, and where is "there," anyway? If you know what plane that is, where it's located, and why this picture matters, you could win a prize in the CNET Road Trip Picture of the Week challenge.

If you have those answers, please e-mail them to me no later than 6 p.m. PDT Friday (to daniel--dot--terdiman--at--cnet--dot--com, and PLEASE include "Picture of the Week" in the subject line). I'll choose a winner at random from among everyone who sends in all three pieces of the correct answer. Please forgive me if you don't hear from me if you're not the winner. I get dozens of responses.

Also, I've turned off comments because some people have been posting the correct answers there. I hate to shut down discussion, but I want you to figure out the answer on your own.

One caveat: no individual can win more than two prizes.

Also, for everyone who played regularly during Road Trip 2010, please note that this is the seventh of the weekly Picture of the Week challenges. With Road Trip 2010 officially finished --and therefore no more new Road Trip pictures per se-- the challenge is now taking place weekly , each Thursday, and the photos could come from anywhere, not just Road Trip 2010 locations. So, please have fun playing today, and then come back each Thursday.

For most of the summer, Geek Gestalt was on Road Trip 2010. After driving more than 18,000 miles in the Rocky Mountains, the Pacific Northwest, the Southwest and the Southeast over the last four years, I drove 5,266 miles this summer looking for the best in technology, science, military, nature, aviation and more throughout the American Northeast.
