The newly designed and touring Boeing 787 Dreamliner paid a visit to Lindbergh Field on Monday, March 12.
As an air-traffic control student, I was fortunate to be approved for tarmac access so I could ogle the graceful plane as it approached for a landing around 11:00 a.m. A crowd of VIPs and media people also watched. Later on, local politicians, airport employees, and business executives climbed aboard to take a tour.
The Dreamliner was parked in San Diego for one day, near the Landmark Aviation tarmac on Pacific Highway. The plane left this morning, March 13, and will make another promotional stop in Long Beach tomorrow.
