Remarks: At PAE - Brand new 773ER for Air France executing a 'go-around' at Boeing Everett due to other small aircraft traffic-photo taken from the grassy mounds at the new Future of Flight Tour area. This aircraft left PAE on about July 3rd, 2006 on it's delivery flight.
Remarks: At PAE - new all-white 747F destined for China Airlines Cargo - taxi's to the runway for a test flight at Boeing Everett. This jet left about June 29th, and we didn't see it again. We left PAE area on July 5th, 2006.
Remarks: At K61B- This aircraft had just arrived, the passengers were unloaded, and the plane is being serviced for the next Tour Flight. The winds were very gusty this day in the Las Vegas region. When this plane landed, the Pilot kept the right wing very low towards the ground to compensate for the strong wind gust.
Remarks: At PAE - Etihad Airways 'A6-ETA' arriving at Paine-Field from a test flight. The Seattle area had very little sunshine the week I was up there. I was very lucky both "TB" and "TA" were up flying this day. The new Tour center here is very nice.
Remarks: At PAE - after a slow taxi to the main runway- "TB" moves out to the runway for a test flight. The engines, when powered up, sounded so powerful, yet smooth as silk. This is one beautiful jet. Photo taken from the PAE/Boeing Tour Center Observation deck looking east.
Remarks: At PAE - A brand new, gleaming 773ER for ETIHAD Airlines positions for the active runway at Boeing-Everett for a test flight. This jet is a magnificent looking airliner and sounds just as good. There were 4 773ER's for ETIHAD this day - 2 with full colors(A6-ETA-ETB & 2 bare metal A6-ETC-ETD). Photo taken from the new Future of Flight building and Tour center.
Remarks: At RNT - taxi test complete, headlights on, a brand new 737-800 for Continental Airlines - in position and hold for it's Maiden flight from Boeing-Renton Facility. This jet landed at BFI about 2hrs 15min later, while the SEA airline collectible show was in full swing. This was my second Maiden flight photo I caught this year from RNT.
Remarks: at PAE - The 1st 777-300ER for EVA Air at Boeing-Everett on a 'sunny' sunday. This jet was repositioned many times this weekend as this jet was being photographed quite a few times by Boeing Cameras. We were able to get this angle on sunday evening.
Remarks: at PAE - The 1st 777-300ER for EVA Air at Boeing-Everett on a cloudy friday. This jet was repositioned many times on saturday and sunday for photographs. We kept going back to get better angles from outside the fence, but it is not easy to get good angles from this end of the airport without drawing BS.(Boeing Security)
