As promised, here are a few photos that capture the moments soon after ‘YT’ returned from a successful inaugural flight at Paine Field today.    With the way the winds were blowing she landed from the South while I was positioned at the north end of the runway about 9,200 feet from her touchdown, so apologies in advance for not having the best landing photos.

However, I think these photos show off her fantastic livery.  Everyone that I spoke to today about her thought she was a beauty.   As it stands now, we’ll see her head to Frankfurt on or about March 13.  In the mean time she’ll take a few more test flights here before being certified for delivery.

If you missed my earlier post showing her departure, you can get caught up here and here.
