Where Eagles Dare

My brother who works for Boeing sent me this great picture of an eagle perched on the vertical fin of their 2nd P8-A Poseidon (anti-submarine aircraft).  It was taken at Boeing Field by one of the inspectors assigned to the airplane.

Neat pic sent to me by my brother who works for Boeing.

(From the email)

On Saturday night  (amid 787 hoopla), Boeing had all of the 787 airline representatives at the Museum of Flight.  At 7:07 PM, an Omega Air Refueling Services 707 landed in front of the crowd. At 7:17, an AirTran 717 landed. This continued until 8:17 when an Air France 777-300ER landed. In the end, the  707,  717, 727,   737, 747, 757, 767, and 777 were lined up nose-to-tail on the taxiway. 

 

Funny thing is to me this looks like the normal queue at Dulles or O'Hare in the Summer time.  :)
