    The Boeing 787 took center stage in the House today, courtesy of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure's aviation subcommittee.

    Little was revealed, though as colleague Graham Warwick notes in an AWIN First piece that landed atop Thursday's Aviation Daily (paying customers only), FAA certification folks have pledged to pull in outside (of aviation) experts when knowledge of certain technologies can be enhanced.

    Here is what FAA Associate Administrator of Aviation Safety Peggy Gilligan had to say (in advance) on the matter, and here's what Boeing VP and 787 chief project engineer Mike Sinnett had to offer.

    Here, for your viewing pleasure, is the entire hearing. (Elsewhere, ain't YouTube grand?)
