Cool opportunity to see one of Boeing’s newest planes today as the 787 Dreamliner flies into the Casper/Natrona County International Airport for some testing.  There’s only 6 of them in existence right now.  Here’s the scoop:

According to the NCIA, the aircraft is scheduled to be here today at noon.  They’re unsure at this point whether the aircraft will be performing touch & go’s, full stop landings, low approaches, or exactly how long the aircraft will be here – and times might be subject to change.  We do know that yesterday, it passed through Cheyenne to test out landing capabilities at a high-altitude airport with strong winds – and made 9 touch & go landings, and a full stop for fuel.

Long process to test these, with a few snags along the way – this is video from the actual first flight back in late 2009:
