Boeing’s 787-9 test aircraft N789FT (ZB002) has transited Cairns on its return to the US after hot weather testing in Alice Springs last week.
N789FT touched down in Cairns shortly before 3.30pm on Monday and after clearing customs and taking on more fuel, departed 90 minutes later bound for Honolulu, arriving there nine hours later.
The accompanying images of N787FT transiting Cairns were taken by Australian Aviation contributor Dave Parer.
