Behold, the 787

I just came across this discussion thread on airliners.net that shows the first 787 all put together!

That is one awesome-looking airplane. Check out the size of those engines on that frame. It almost looks like the love-child of a 777 and a 757. (Yes, I know that thinking about airplanes mating means I should see a shrink.)

Interesting. Was hoping for more upward flare in the wings, but perhaps we’ll see this when the airplane is in flight.

Also, could the fact that the engines seem gigantic be attributable to their being covered by stand-out red plastic, or is the engine:fuselage size ratio actually greater than that of other models?
