It Doesn't Count If It's Invisible!: Boeing 787 Test Pilots "Skywrite" Designation And Logo Across 13 States

February 14, 2012


Pilots for Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner used a 19-hour endurance test flight to fly in the shape of a '787' and the Boeing logo because...I dunno, I guess that's how pilots get their kicks. Me? I pretend to pass out at the controls.

Their flight's route from Washington to Iowa and back, revealed by flight tracking company Flightaware, shows the logo and airplane type in giant but extremely neat lines.

In a blog post, Boeing vice president of marketing Randy Tinseth said the flight test team "coordinated with the many air traffic control centers, choosing the routing to avoid restricted airspace."

I actually have a friend who works for Boeing who petitioned to have them draw boobs instead of the company logo but it got shot down by the man because the man is obviously more of an ass dude. Compromise on a peener?

Thanks to Michael and Bradley, who have never written in the sky but have written in bathroom stalls before. It better not have been 'GW SUCKS'.

  • That's actually the old McDonnall-Douglas that Boeing took when they merged. (NERD!)

  • Emmitt Morgans

    You're right, GW, I could definitely go for some 13-state-wide boobs....  Boeing Boeing, indeed!

    and the point of doing this wasssss...........?

    I count thirteen states... fake and gay.

  •  jackass its from a press release by Boeing.  you're fake and gay.

  • $18922249

    It was a joke... before GW edited the title, it read "It Doesn't Count If It's Invisible!: Boeing 787 Test Pilots "Skywrite" Designation And Logo Across 10 States". So... I thought it would be funny... apparently you did not... to imitate a troll in the spirit of satire, given the discrepancy between the title and the image. Har har har... 

    So... take it easy, my man. Also, capitalization and apostrophes never hurt anyone. I would look into both, if I were you.
