Boeing 787 test aircraft ZA004 touches down in Arizona

Boeing 787 Dreamliner arrives in Arizona

The Boeing [NYSE:BA] 787 Dreamliner made its first landing at Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport this weekend. The fourth 787 to be built, ZA004, is undergoing a short series of tests that require a combination of hot weather and low-altitude conditions. A crew of nearly 75 is supporting the airplane to ensure smooth operations during testing. The stay in Arizona is expected to last only a few days.

The 787 flight test fleet, currently comprised of four airplanes, has logged more than 820 hours of flying in the last six months. Two more airplanes are expected to join the flight test fleet soon.
