BBC Radio 4 News reports that "thousands of aviation enthusiasts are lining the runway at Toulouse" .. I wonder what the performance decrement is for that sort of contamination???

BBC still not live. At least 22 minutes to anything. tick tick tick tick...oh no David Learmont being interviewed.....tick tick tick.

I remember being in a Boeing boardroom a few years ago for our B747-475 introduction and asking them when they were going to extend the upper deck all the way back.


Oh no, we can't do that.

Good luck to the test pilots.


Good luck to Boeing as well.


tick tick tick. Keep the damn ground vehicles the hell away.

P.S. From the helicopter shots as big as it is, it looks like it could be longer.

Hmm - taxiing.

Mr. Learmount , talking head, saying they've raised the gear. They haven't.
