    Me sorprenden los avances tecnológicos y científicos. Como a muchos ,me llama la atención el espacio sideral y saber si se puede vivir en otros planetas, pero sin descuidar nuestro planeta tierra.

    Beautiful, beautiful, nicely choreographed. Love ya Boeing, lets keep those planes moving. Hoping God Willing for a second visit to the Boeing Commercial Airplane Plant in Everett, WA since May 2009. Boy did I have a blast. I spent about $150 buying the new Boeing 747-8i, Boeing 777-300ER, Boeing 767-400ER, the Boeing 737-900ER NG, the Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and a United Boeing 747-400. I still have my UPS Boeing 727 since I received it as a gift way back in the 20th century. I also have the Boeing 747-200B VC-25A Air Force One Model. Nice collection. Can wait until the new Boeing 737 MAX comes out. You guys are the best airplane makers in the World. My next book I will read is the Boeing 747 after I had finished reading the Boeing 777 way back in 2010.

    Don't get me wrong it's a fantastic idea but what if they accidentally pressed the wrong button?

    My dream job since I was 8. Played Microsoft flight simulator all my life I'm 24 still not a pilot. I love aviation I love watching videos just like this. What technology has come. Boeing keep it up!!

    Am I the only person who thinks touch screens are too"touchy"for use in an aircraft during rough turbulence, sudden loss of power or other circumstances where the cockpit is vibrating or high g forces are being brought to bear? I'm pretty sure, certainly hope, that they use s better touchscreen than my phone does because I"hit"the wrong button a lot with touchscreens. I think its great that technology advances, but its not an advance if it isn't an advantage over the previous methods. Does this control system actually work as well under stress as it does during smooth skies?

    I'd have liked to have seen Boeing go to a full touchscreen cockpit rather then the hybrid system they have in the 787. Maybe next time?

    Seeing that the glass flight deck has been around for years, why put a video out about it now?

    Boeing needs to start making a new supersonic plane like the Concorde again instead of these fancy little touch ups

    OK of they don't have to touch the screen to make anything work OK fine but of they have to touch it heck no cause it will be either to touchy or it won't want to work when you touch it so either you won't be able to land or you accidentally something off and then you crash and if you're paying attention to the screen because its not working Daniel crash it won't be paying attention to how high you are or how will you are so you could hit another plane or crash into the ground or go through stormy patch of clouds

    Can they make the floor beneath the pilots be a monitor that displays what is underneath the cockpit in the sky?

    Boeing how did you do the part with the small piece of interior design and development for the plane?

    Pilots have deliberately been buying planes with analog gauges because of the volatility of batteries, and if your batteries were to go dead (like can happen, especially with Boeing's 787 Dreamliner as well as many small planes) and you had to land, analog gauges require no power, so they would all still work, but all those innovative avionics can't run without power, making it very dangerous to land for larger planes especially because they fly IFR (which stands for instrument flight reference, meaning you use the instruments, instead of your visual outside sight line to fly) just making it more dangerous if there were to be an electrical problem.

    The future. Boeing will be building Commercial Space Planes and other advanced aircraft well into the 22nd century.

    Don't most modern Boeing and Airbus aircraft have glass cockpits already? My sure what they're trying to present

    A pilot in a flight simulator in everyday life should be.In many situations, can be ctitical
    to prevent learn practicing. Very Good thing….

    how the hell can that be more safer, lose power or any electrical malfunction the whole thing goes black, no more being able to control the aircraft, I think to many people have been playing with there cell phones

    So what happens when the screen goes out? at least allow screens the ability to be switched over in case of a screen malfunction. For a second I thought they put tv screens where the windshield was 😂

    It foggiest my mind that instructors in flying clubs STILL want you to learn on steam gauge equipped 1978 Cessna 172Ms when current state of the art is far superior to round guages. They say they want you to learn this first and then graduate to glass only if you need to. Please! give me a Cessna 172 with more situational awareness and information at eye level. Even though I learned to drive in a Chevy II with 3 on the tree, doesn't mean I'll ever drive one again…. coffee, black, thanks

    "Pilots love new technology"….Ehhhh do they really though? I prefer an analog cockpit to the glass cockpit.
