The paint schemes for these aircraft are indicative of an airframe still under testing or certification. Most probably they were determining crosswind limits for the airframe or autopilot.

Impressive nonetheless.

Hey N57, does your name stand for New Garden airport?

Yes I proudly am part of N57! But yes the paint does indicate it was a in testing. And it was interesting how the 747 SP was in there, ive seen a few of them at Boeing Field years back.

Which airfield is that? Seems like a desert. Does anyone know the ICAO code?

How did you find that one? I found that the newer 777s were tested at Edwards AFB, not Andrews, But thanks for that.

O.K. Here are my Guesses as to the landing Strip....

Edwards AIr Force Base, California (High Desert, with plenty of Winds to shuffle about in Fall Winter, along Hwy 58.  

Mojave International Airport (But I do not see any of the sitting duck planes, 'the grave yard')  Mojave, California also High Desert Back Sloap of the mountains with plenty of winds along Hwy 58 as well...

And the one no one thought of......

Moses Lake Washington...KMWH...This is only a hop-skip-and a jump from BFI (Boeing Field) in a Flight.  JAL trains there 747 pilots there.  a Ton of Touch and Go's....  Everyone thinks Washington state as Green, well in Eastern WA, it is Desert, just like you see in the video...Just another airport to ponder....

A380-800  I know this will cause a lot of 'debate' but coming from Washington state (Boeing) I just want to add this little comment (and no offense to you, or airbus..it is amazing the sucker actually got off the ground.)   "Do you see Boeing Test Pilots with Parachutes on during their tests, Like the Aircrew of the A380 had on during their maiden flight?"  smiley  Just friendly banter

I doubt the Feds would let Boeing test the 777 out of Andrews, as that's in Maryland, and where the current Air Force 1 and Air Force 2 are housed.

Edwards is possible, but 07MT in Glasgow is definitely it. Have a look at the info for it from Airnav:

http://www.airnav.com/airport/07MT

Boeing uses this field quite a bit.

Im actually from Washington and Boeing rocks, my dad worked for them also. And besides the test pilots get all the glory, remember? Boeing over Airbus any day, barnone.

As for the airstrip, I think it is Ebwards AFB, or your right it could be Moses lake. Actually I think it is Moses, But checkairman, are you sure its Edwards? I say it might be Moses Because alot of Boeing activity there. Just a thought.

d-a-m-b  cheesy  

Houghton11 - there's acutually been quite a few SP's built, check out Airliners.net or Planepictures.net for more... we actually have the Saudia Royal Flight -SP enroute right now back to IAH Houston Intercontinental!
And speaking of crosswinds, for most of this week we've been having a few days with some pretty heafty crosswinds (20kts-40kts sustained) forcing us to use runways that are normally restricted for takeoffs only, unless the pilots are gutzy enough to pull off tributes to that video!

I really have no clue what song it is but it goes well with the clip, makes the 747 and 777 even more graceful for such huge aircraft that they are. As for the airport it could be two different ones, my best guess is Moses lake and Edwards.

I'll try to email them to find out, and could anyone here translate what it says on the clip, I believe its spanish.
