This Virgin Atlantic Boeing 787-9 takes off from Shanghai Pudong Airport in the middle of a rain storm causing quite significant delays to some flights. Luckily, Virgin managed to get us on the ground in London 30 minutes early!

  1. Thanks again Daniel for the trailing edge wing view. Learned something about the 787-9 that I was unaware of – it has flaperons, just like the 777.
    Interesting bend to the wing once airborne.
    Weather had me concerned. What a freaking down pour prior to your departure! Though when it was your turn for departure, the rain had lightened up a bit.
    Also, thanks for having your camera lens set for infinity (or did you just turn off auto-focus?). Makes watching your videos so much more pleasurable, especially when you zoom out and back. Also because of the rain drops on the window, in auto-focus, the camera would have focused on them instead. That would have been annoying.
    Cheers,
    Tony

  2. Another thumbs up, Dan!,!m What is the name of flap in the middle of the wing that kept moving once airborne? Thanks

  3. Funny thing. When you were on his plane I was on another Virgin Atlantic Plane. A A330-300 Though. Not at the back in Eco but up front in the best FC Ever, from Dubai to LHR coming back from my week holiday. They said to us that the flight time to Dubai when I was going was 7 HR 30mins but it was actually instead around 6 HR 45 Mins, VS Defiantly know how to get their passengers to places early
