Well I have had to keep my mouth shut for a number of days now, but the cat is out of the bag. Today I fly away again. If you have been following my twitter and facebook you would of seen a surge of tweets lately. I just got back from Vegas (where I had an amazing time trust me, and a full trip report is pending) but yesterday evening I got to spend the time with Qatar Airways as they signed for their first 787.
Today the festivities continue with more things to happen. But pretty much by the time this tweet goes live (I am writing this about 730am but it won’t be going live right now) I will be onboard Qatar Airways first 787. I am headed to Qatar for the next week and get back next Sunday night (at midnight ouch :/ ) but I am totally, absolutely excited. From an Avgeek perspective this is Nirvana. I get to be a part of the festivities for the delivery of an aircraft but also the delivery flight! And a Rare one at that as it flys direct from Seattle to Doha in Qatar.
Unfortunately I don’t yet have the link for you to follow along but if you keep an eye on Twitter and Facebook (twitter is @bigmalx or follow the hash tag #Qatar787 you should eventually be able to) and you should be able to get a flightradar link eventually to track the flight. My next blog post for me will probably be from the other side of the world, in the warmth of Qatar.
