Is that for real? Like, isn't the Dreamliner flying about six times as fast as the Bi-plane?

It is real, Simon - and, yes, the 787 is flying much faster. It's also quite a distance away, so the relative motion is reduced a bit, but, as you'll see if you look at the rest of the pictures, they weren't "in frame" together for all that long.

I really like this picture because it shows just how big the Boeing 40 is - not in comparison to the 787 - but in comparison to the pilot.  It's a massive whopping airplane!
