I serviced this aircraft in Eglin Air Force base while it underwent testing in the -25 degree hangar to see how it handles those types of temperatures.

When Boeing had the mis-fortune of their inflight emergency, Laredo, Texas had the good fortune of having the aircraft land here.

Never have I witnessed such a gathering of dedicated engineers get to the task of getting their dream machine back home. It was an absolute pleasure to meet such a fine group of individuals and work with them on a daily basis.

After 22 days of intensive ground work, all of us at the airport watched the 787 take the runway for departure. Right before rotation you could see those incredible wings arching upwards and away she went !

It was obviously a big set back for Boeing, but I can tell the traveling public they have no fears - no expense was spared in shuttling engineers back and forth from Seattle and no one ever took a break it seems except to grab a quick bite to eat.

I feel very priveledged to have witnessed the future of aviation happening right here in my back yard - what an awesome aircraft !

Merry Christmas to all at Boeing - you have earned it !!
