This year Boeing used an All Nippon Airways 787-9 Dreamliner for their, what seams to be annual, flight demonstration at the Farnborough Airshow. Still some gorgeous shots of a gorgeous plane flying around and showing off what she can do when she's light.

Oh, and it was shot in my backyard.

That must be like Christmas day for those pilots. You don't get to do that with a commercial airliner everyday.

That is one hell of a backyard you got there...


Thanks for the video...

I went to the Boeing site . . . went through all the sections on different aspects and parts of the plane.

There was very little about the interior customer comfort aspects, seating etc. Which was mostly what I wanted to see.

Silly rabbits.

Roughly, how much heavier would a standard commercial load (fuel/pax/cargo) on takeoff be compared to this demonstration (assuming an hour of fuel and no cargo)?

Lol. Yeah that takes a while. I have to plan ahead.

The interior passenger comforts are all dictated by the airline that is buying the jets. Boeing just presents them with what they can put into the jets with the various subcontracted interiors but it's up to the airline to decide how comfortable the passengers are going to be since they are the ones flipping the bill.

The max take off weight of the 787-9 is 557K lbs, the empty weight is 277K lbs. Probably add to that empty weight a few thousand pounds of fuel weight and that would be how much it weights during a demo flight.

A lot. They carry about an hour or two worth of fuel usually for a 15-20 minute demonstration. Passenger flights take off near gross usually.
