Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Almost wheels down

Wheels touching

Coming in for landing

In the air

On the ground

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.
