At the Fukushima Airport in Ishikawa-gun, Fukushima Prefecture, where the tsunami was damaged by the Great East Japan Earthquake and the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant accident, ANA All Nippon Airways carried out a reconstruction support flight on November 13, 2011.
Following the revival support flight at Sendai Airport, a pleasure flight was conducted with JA802A, the second B787 delivered to ANA.
JA802A departed from Haneda Airport and landed at Fukushima Airport at 11:18 earlier than planned as a charter aircraft for NH2051.
193 elementary school fifth and sixth graders from Fukushima Prefecture, selected by the general recruitment, will board for a sightseeing flight right at 1:00 pm.
After returning from the sightseeing flight, the Boeing 787 flew over Fukushima Airport and then made a lowpass flight over the runway at low altitude.
After passing Fukushima Airport, the Boeing 787 turned and approached from R/W01.
On the other side of the terminal at Fukushima Airport, there is a small hill where you can see a powerful landing scene from an angle you would not normally see.
The wing, which was warped upward, also appears to be gradually lowering with decreasing buoyancy.

During the Fukushima Airport Reconstruction Support Flight, staff members opened a part of the airport premises and opened the aircraft to the public.
The B787’s wing uses carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP), which combines carbon fiber and resin, to achieve a highly rigid and lightweight wing.
The Boeing 787-8 turbofan engine is available in either Rolls-Royce Holdings Trent 1000 or General Electric GEnx.
All Nippon Airways employs Trent 1000 on all aircraft.
The first and second ANA Boeing 787s, which were delivered ahead of the rest of the world, were specially painted.
The tail of the Boeing 767 was curved at the bottom and straight at the top, but the 787 was designed with a lot of curves as a whole.
A sticker welcoming the reconstruction support flight was affixed to the towing car at Fukushima Airport.

ANA’s Boeing 787-881, JA801A and JA802A have been repainted from the special paint to the normal paint, Triton Blue, but I would like to see this paint again.
