    Thanks for viewing the Southern California Air Traffic.

    It looked like a test flight. It was flying off the coast. It was flying little low(10,000 feet) so it pop In/out of my coverage area doing the flight off of Mexico coast line.
    Looks like it will be flying again on Wednesday.
    My box should be online tomorrow. So you should be able to see it on FlightRadar24.com

    FlightAware didn't track it. but the flight plan was From/To So California Logistics (KVCV) airport.

    Thie is the fourh test aircraft, which currently is based at Victorville.

    You should also be able to see test flights by the 747-8 in the LAX area. This testing is being done out of Palmdale due to space constrains at Everett.

    Obviously these aircraft are also often viewed in the Seattle area on the Portland/Nainamo radars.

    ANA is set to become the first commercial operator of the 787 with the first of 50 aircraft scheduled to be delivered later this year.
