Boeing is to have a live webcast of the event starting at 9:40 PST.  I know what webpage I'll have open at work tomorrow!

There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

Indeed, it was pretty awesome. I can't help but have "Took you long enough you bloody bastards" in the back of my head though ;)

Saw the baby a few months ago in real life on the ground, now I see it many miles away on video in the air.

All those people on the spotting hill at the Future of Flight Center reminds me of times when life was really good  ::rolleyes:.
