Boeing’s Newest, Oldest Airliners Fly Together

Design has changed just slightly over the past 80 years. Great Pic!

The biplane could probably land on the wing of the 787!

Great shot of the 787 wing. Look how far up the tips are!

I'm sure the two airplanes were close enough together for the photo only for a few seconds because of the difference in speed. Wide open, the Model 40's airspeed was probably below the 787's clean stall. So the photographer had to get the timing just right. I wonder if there were multiple passes.
