EDWARDS AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. -- A Boeing 787 Dreamliner takes off after a touch-and-go landing at Edwards AFB Aug. 14. Boeing has been conducting flight tests with its newest airliner at Edwards recently. Periodically, aviation industry companies are provided the opportunity to conduct flight tests at Edwards given the base's unique test assets such as multiple runways, a controlled airspace, large dry lakebeds and flying weather.
