This rare video uploaded by U.S. Youtube user wmassbruce doesn’t just show off the inside of the aircraft. It gives viewers a glimpse of what exactly is seen and experienced by pilots at the helm of one of Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliners during takeoff.
As wmassbruce notes, the pilots in the video take notice of the fact that the modern 787 Dreamliner sounds considerably louder during takeoff than the older aircraft they’re used to. Kind of reminds me of a certain car sitting in my garage this Winter. Unlike the car however, the Dreamliner can make it up the street and more.
Video: Rare view from inside the cockpit of a real 787 Dreamliner during takeoff
After the manifold of battery and fire-related 787 problems we’ve been forced to write so much about recently, it’s reassuring to simply witness one of the massive new super-airliners take off without any apparent hitch or glitch.
Does the 787 have a shining future in civilian aviation ahead, or is it just a big bust by Boeing, destined for the aircraft boneyards of the Southwest United States? Let us know your opinion in the comments below.
