Google Map of Boeing 787's First Flight

The Dreamliner Flight Track

Boeing's new aircraft, the 787 Dreamliner, will today take its very first flight. Boeing's website Boeing's New Airplane is hosting a live webcast of the event and have produced a Google Map that will track the plane's flight in real-time. The Dreamliner is due to take off at 10 am (PST) (18:00 GMT).

At the time of writing the map shows the Dreamliner parked directly on the runway at Paine Field, Seattle. The map includes indicators that will show the plane's speed and altitude whilst in flight. Flight data for the map is provided by FlyteComm,Inc. The Dreamliner's location will be updated on the map once a minute.
