Yeah, I took these pics while watching it. One is of it taxiing back after landing and the other is it's flight path from flight aware, near the end of the flight.

I fly MSFS, so I was curious to see what flight path they used on their first test flight. I wanted to see where they fly to stay out of everyone's way. I had to laugh when I saw the south east loop. Boeing getting the requisite pics around Mt. Rainier on the first flight. ;)

BTW, I never noticed the designation painted on the belly, but I don't think the video feed ever gave a good shot from the belly.
