Qatar Boeing 787 video

For something a little different, here's video of a Qatar Boeing 787 validation flight at the Farnborough airshow. What makes this different is that it includes imagery from a FLIR setup. What struck me was the lack of heat emanating from most of the aircraft, except the engines and APU, cockpit windows, pitot [or other] sensors and what might be one of the emergency exit doors on the right side [near the end of the video].

Thanks to Flightglobal for sharing the footage. Awesome!
