Dreamliner by Dreamliner

Last month Boeing drew a massive geo-glyph of a Dreamliner aircraft during a test flight over the United States. While performing engine performance testing a Dreamliner test aircraft flew for 18 hours from Seattle to Seattle. Its flight path (which took it as far south as the southern tip of Texas) just happened to be in the shape of a giant, USA spanning, airplane.

You can review the whole plane-shaped flight path of Flight N7874 on Flightradar24. The plane's flight path is displayed for you on a Google Map. If you press the play button on the map you can watch as the plane marker follows the flight path on the map. The dashboard display, beneath the map, continually updates with the plane's speed & altitude during the test flight.
