Are we there yet?! Boeing Dreamliner 17-hour flight path creates outline of itself over USA

The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner embarked on a 4,000-mile winding route that took a whopping 17 hours to complete in order to create the unique flight path shape.

It is an American long-haul, mid-size wide body, twin-engine jet airliner.

The purpose of this stunt? An endurance test for the Boeing’s new Rolls- Royce engine.

The 17 hour, 46 minute flight started August 2nd and ended the following day, taking off and landing at the Boeing Field- King County International Airport, in Seattle.

To start it headed east across Montana and Dakota before it made a sharp turn when it reached the coastal city Marquette in Michigan state. The pilot then headed into the central states of America, carving out a picture of a Dreamliner as he went.

This is not the first time something of this nature has been done by the company. In February 2012, a Boeing 787-8 took an 18-hour flight, travelling more than 10,000 miles from Washington State to Iowa as it traced out 787 and the Boeing logo in the skies above the US.

But this time the Boeing covered 15,766 miles making it the longest commercial flight in the world!
