Dubbed ZA001, the first 787 Dreamliner entered the record books with its inaugural flight in December 2009. Since then, the Boeing Test and Evaluation team has put the plane through its paces, testing the jetliner's systems, flight controls and other performance characteristics.
Recently, ZA001 Flight Test director Scott Peterson took us onboard for a video tour. He pointed out the various pieces of testing equipment, such as the giant water tanks in the front and back of the cabin, and a cone-shaped apparatus that is suspended from the tail of the airplane.
