Up close and personal - the Dreamliner experience

Early this morning I was standing on the tarmac staring at this massive aircraft.

It was the first one built by Boeing, and is the only one kitted out like this.

Sitting in the cockpit was pretty cool... was being able to walk around and inspect all the equipment as well as talk to the Boeing engineers. I also love the view from up here...

...and here.

It's not until one gets up close and personal does it really sink in how big this thing is.

Isn't it amazing what man is capable of?

There are heaps more photos - I've added an addendum for this post.
