|Launch the Alert Dreamliner!
The elegant Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner performed a stunning flight display at the 2014 Farnborough Air Show. Under the expert guidance of Boeing test pilot Mike Bryan, the Dreamliner humbled its envious cousins with its amazing high-performance takeoffs, pulling close to 2 Gs on takeoff (the limit with flaps down). Many thought the climb angle was nearly vertical, although the actual angle was 40-45 degrees (still pretty darn steep). This Aerocature also shows the unique 787 Maneuver Load Alleviation, in which the outer ailerons are deflected upward to reduce the bending stress on the wing. (This Aerocature was commissioned by test pilot Bryan.)
Note: Each month a different image from the current calendar year is featured here. To avoid
the gnawing 12-month period of suspense to see all 12 pieces (along with lots of aviation
anniversaries (When did the first pig fly?), incredible trivia (What is Godzilla's "birthday"?),
and outrageous quotes from people that should know better) place your
order for the Aerocatures Calendar now!
