Quick, early post this week, blog fans. Astute readers will note that I don't tend to mention work here on the blog. However, today we had a celebratory event of sorts: British Airways flew one of their 787 Dreamliners, powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines, over our facility in Derby. BA is entering into service with the 787 tomorrow.
I've toiled away for 2+ years on the Trent 1000 so it's nice to have a little perk, especially on a nice day. A previous flyover (link) was hidden by the clouds so I didn't get to see anything then.
Despite the weather, I still couldn't do this one right. I went in after 2 passes and evidently the 3rd pass was the lowest/closest. Oh well.
