Flying the 787-10

Well… It handles amazingly for such a large aircraft. And now what everyone is thinking about, does it tailstrike easily, yes it does. I finally understand how much flair it needs for a smooth landing (barely any) and how much rotation on takeoff (again, barely any) I’d recommend it to anyone used to long aircraft like the 777s and maybe 757s. All hail Lord 787-10 Pencil

At what degrees pitch does it tail strike?

I saw an ANA one take off, and a United one land at Seattle about 15 minutes ago - it looks very cool in action :)

What callsign? If it was United 806 then it was me xD But yeah they’re beautiful!

I was Honey Badger / Quantum 1 787-8 in Boeing house livery. It could well have been you I saw!

Hmm… to me the update still needs some tinkering. I love that they do Apple last so they can fix up some bugs with it. Also the hommie 757 won’t be happy about this.

It looks better than I though it would be, I am considering buying the 787-9 though as it looks easier for taxiing

the 787 in general is hard for taxiing

True, but the -10 is definitely the hardest IMO
