EVERETT, Wash.--The day belonged to the 747-8 Intercontinental, which made its first flight Sunday. But while the press and hundreds of Boeing employees waited for the new 747 to take off, one of Boeing's 787 Dreamliners was doing touch-and-go and aborted landing tests.
Here, we see the plane ascending quickly, moments after coming in for an aborted landing test.
Almost wheels down
The 787 Dreamliner, just a second before its wheels hit the ground at Paine Field in Everett, Wash.
The Dreamliner touches down. But instead of taxiing in, it accelerated and took off again.
