Poll result: Which one will fly first? 787 or 747-8?

Well, the 787 finally made it into the sky and in doing so beat its sibling 747-8, which is now expected to perform its maiden flight early in January.

What did you think? It was a remarkably close vote, with 50.9% going for the 787 and 49.1% thinking the Dreamliner just wouldn’t work in time and the 747-8 would beat it.

Ad I've monitoring progress of both aircraft, and personally, I like B747-8. Twin engine? Remember of Hudson River incident with twin engine. I've flown over trans-pacific more than 300, feel more comfortable with 47s than 772 or 773ER.
I would rather see 47-8 before B87.
Remember, we put men on the moon 40 years ago with out any problem. Now MBA in America can not do anything right except big mouth off. Big change ist't it?

Some would question that we put men on the moon forty years ago. Some say it was Nevada!

Can't beat a good conspiracy theory!
