How to track Boeing's 787 Dreamliner in Australia with FlightAware

Want to try and catch Boeing's 787 Dreamliner during its visits to Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Darwin over the coming week?

For the best chance of knowing when to look for the 787, fire up the free FlightAware website or apps and track the flight live.

The special DreamTour airplane flies under the callsign BOE787, for which there's a live FlightAware web page already available.

FlightAware lets you track the Boeing 787 in flight: here's a snap we took this morning as the plane was en route from Seattle to Sydney

If you're using one of the FlightAware mobile apps for your smartphone or tablet – they're available for the iPhone and iPad plus Android, BlackBerry and Windows Phone devices – plug in BOE787 as the flight number to search for.

Australian Business Traveller will be on board one of those flights – it'll be the special Qantas 787 'Dream Flight' from Sydney to Brisbane and back on Saturday May 26th. So keep an eye on our @AusBT Twitter channel for live snaps throughout the day!
