Boeing 787 & 737 video

I must say, when I watch a video like this, I miss aviation.

I could not figure out why this was posted on TF but then I saw the two trawlers out in the bay at 0.49

Oh sure, it looks like a piece of cake without a load of fat Americans, all their insanely heavy luggage, a couple of tons of mail, and minimal fuel. Probably not interior either :-)

What do you recon that rate of climb is? Im thinking 15000 FPM but I may be way off.
If it aint Boeing I aint going.

Regardless of the weight , pax , cargo , fuel load an aircraft mist be able to LOOSE an engine and maintain climb performance .

Take out 90% of the fuel, no pax and cargo and an aircraft with 2 operating engines , at sea level on a cool day, does have a spectacular deck angle and climbs like the fighters of WWII could not dream of.

15000 would be doable if they accelerated and used that extra speed for the initial climb, but doubt it would be sustainable for more than a few seconds. However, I'd bet they could hold better than 5000 fpm lightly loaded for 3 or 4 minutes.

I've got no experience on the newer jets, but the 757 and 767 could come pretty close.

This topic sure doesn't have much about trawlers, but there probably a lot of pilots here.

The trawler has a lousy rate of climb.... even with speed. We just don't want to see a rate of descent.....

Pretty birds.

Did not realize how much bigger the 787 is vs the 737 til I saw them together.

Boeing is a company to be proud of...

Reminds me of the Eastern Airlines pilots ( yes I am that old) that had the contract to fly into Guantanamo back in the early 80s.

Couldnt cross the fencelines so they had to do the old carrier approach and drop em in with a skid within a wicker turn radius.

Scared tbe non military passengers but the retired Navy pilots loved to be able to yank and bank.

First time you fly solo formation flying, the join up is about heart stopping, after that, testosterone helps. Never could figure out why women pilots were actually better at it ....other than they sure could fly the numbers.

Your comment about Eastern airlines triggered a memory. When I was 17 years old ( 1965) I lived in Freeport Grand Bahama and I worked for a company called Freeport Transfer. My job was to back trucks up to the airplane cargo hold and transfer baggage from the aircraft to the hotel.

Back then Eastern used the long runway at Freeport for flight training. Seeing those B727 and DC9's do maximum performance takeoffs was a hoot and got me interested in aviation.

It was always neat to climb into the baggage hold of an Air Canada flight and find snow on the luggage as we hauled it out into the heat and humidity.

Only once did I ding a plane. A 727. Small dent. Dont tell anyone.

Just remembered. We called them "bag drags". Me and a couple of Haitians were the crew.

I enjoyed the yank and bank at time, but not with passengers aboard.

As for formation, most of mine has been in formation from takeoff to landing. Very rare, did I join up.... above my pay grade.

I did the tour of the Boing plant last year. It is insane. Approx 30,000 people work there and they can put one of the new ones together in a bit over a couple of days, start to finish.
They don't manufacture anything there - just put the pieces together.
