The Dreamliner salute

At 9:50 this morning we were standing on Bastion Point watching the new Boeing 787-8 fly over the Harbour Bridge. I can't believe how excited I was, especially knowing that tomorrow I will be one of the lucky few to look through the test equipment filled interior of the craft.




What a beautiful sight - so streamlined.

Up here where we were the view is fantastic over the harbour to Rangitoto.

We went back to the open field and attempted to fly our kite in the light breeze.



Kien loved it, and despite the pictures showing you of successful kite flying let me tell you it really wasn't. The thing stayed up maybe a minute each time before quickly plummeting to the ground again. It was only after we packed up did the wind pick up - typical Murphy's law style.
