Boeing plane etches huge logo into the sky
By Rich Leigh on Sunday, February 19, 2012
Taking 18 hours and 9,000 nautical miles, a Boeing 787 Dreamliner has traced ‘787’ and the Boeing logo in the sky, to literally put the next-gen plane on the map. The satellite image looks like a gigantic etch-a-sketch, and was captured by live flight trackers FlightAware.
The journey crossed 13 US state borders (if you can rely on my crude counting skills).
The full route is detailed here on FlightAware, and took more than two weeks for the plane to complete.
