Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner has arrived in Auckland. After a direct flight from Seattle to Auckland the 787 landed at about 9am on Saturday morning. It's now at the engineering department, no doubt being examined by the staff who will be maintaining the aircraft once Air New Zealand takes delivery of its aeroplanes in a couple of years time.
Fences were in the way which prevented us getting a closer shot, but depending on the time the aircraft leaves on Tuesday we make get chance of some closer shots as it takes off. The last shot is a tigherter crop of the second shot and clearly shows an Air New Zealand name tag above the doors. Perhaps this 'plane is Air New Zealand's after all?
