Hello Infinite Flight, I was messing around in the 787 and I noticed this:

What kind of significance does “Spirit of Joe Sutter” have to Infinite Flight? Thanks y’all.

This was done right after he died. 2016 was when the 787 rework was released.

This would be more fit to 747 reworks (especially -200 series) later there will be this name in the 747 IF livery later. Yes, just like on this 787 IF livery. :)
