This thing is parked here in Minneapolis until tomorrow evening. I had to go down and snap some pictures when I heard about it. It's huge!

Fisheye shot would have worked better if I could actually get up there. Maybe tomorrow I'll see if I can before it leaves.

Lucky you. I saw on the news it had been in Edmonton last week.

Nicely caught. We have one that comes to Charlotte NC every 2 years. I can not wait to try to get some shots. To be as big as they are, they can take off on pretty short runways

Thanks for sharing.

Forgot what country it is that has it done. But the company they deliver for uses specific electric motors. And the only place to have the motors serviced is in NC. So, they fly them in get them serviced and then fly them back.

Not sure as to when exactly. I am still trying to find out

I'd love to see a 737 or larger stroll by it in a pic or video......I've seen the size comparison charts but want to see it in real time!

Nice shot, hopefully you can get more....

I wasn't there to see it, but I believe it took off as scheduled late Wednesday night. Maybe you were looking at the wrong spot or they moved it?

Yep. Only one exists. A second is partially built. Nice shot. I wish I could have gotten it flying.

Saw it back in September here in Zurich. Hopefully should be a picture attached of it on departure. Have others with it kneeling and nose open, but too big for POTN, and not on my website, as I'm lazy.
