787-8 Dreamliner download link

To install a plane in flightgear I mostly have to download a .zip file. Why cant I find a dowload link for the 787-8 Dreamliner where I can download a zip file for this plane ? :shock:

Planes not already accepted in the official FlightGear repository are not hosted on the FlightGear Web site, but on external services such as GitHub or Gitorious or on the personal Web sites of their developers.

Should you not find a plane, you can search for it in the wiki, its description page usually has a download link.

In this case, the Dreamliner is hosted on Gitorious - click the "Download" link at the top of the page to download the aircraft. Note that, as stated in the README, after uncompressing the .zip file you must rename the folder "fg-boeing-787-8-main..." to "787-8", otherwise FlightGear won't load the aircraft.

The 787-8 is available on Omega's hangar:, scroll a bit down in the list
There is also another 787 at

it appears, the 787-8 has still some problems, I got a lot of "model for animation not found" errors and the A/P didn't work at all. I tried to implement an A/P SYS7, the one I use as standard for my planes, it worked mostly, but I was already warned on Mumble not to push this to Git because "the 787 has some additional functions for flight envelope protection" and thus an 80% working AP would be worse than a 100% not working one ... well, if you need it to fly her, let me know.
