Twofer Tuesday: A Boeing 787 ZA001 Update & A Little Lockheed C-130 Action.

Things have a bit quiet as of late at the High Desert region of Palmdale Airport.  So, when we were tipped off that the prototype Boeing 787, ZA001, was now moved to the Boeing hanger, we perked up a little bit.   The smuggled photo shows ZA001 in mid-move via a tug.

We will keep our ears to the wind to see if our man on the scene can provide us with an update on the situation, and to ascertain if the information is worth what we paid for it.

As for the C-130 "Herky," well, she was doing touch and go's, or "Circuits and Bumps" as the Poms call 'em.

According to officials at BCN, "The two airplanes were exactly where they were supposed to be."

Except, just not at the same time, right?
