Inaugural United Airlines 787-9 flight in video

I was fortunate to be on the inaugural United Airlines 787-9 Dreamliner flight working for Airways Magazine to document the event. I wrote up a trip report over on their site and expect a similar version to run in the print version of the magazine eventually. But I also put together a quick video of the flight, mostly a timelapse of takeoff and landing, but with a quick scan of the BusinessFirst cabin as well.

Plus it gives me a chance to share this photo, which I think is my favorite from the day.

I love this shot of the nose wheel on the mark prior to flight.

I really do enjoy watching the wing flex in flight, both in real life and on the video. Looking forward to my next Dreamliner flight in November.
