Video Tour Of The Dreamliner

For all you aviation enthusiasts like me - who aren't flight test engineers - this video provides a first hand look at what goes on when testing a plane's performance characteristics, system and other flight controls that are important to its overall operation.

Miles of cable and wire were used to hook up all the equipment inside the Dreamliner; Water tanks were used to test the plane's centre of gravity; and a cone was tied to the tale in order to test static air pressure. All pretty cool stuff.
