787 Takeoff Video?

Boeing said its window for a first flight would open on December 15 with the actual flight timing dependent on final internal reviews, taxi testing and Federal Aviation Administration documentation.
I want to see the video of the 787 Takeoff, only thing I could watch was an animation of a 787 Takeoff. Where's the actual video of the real 787 Takeoff taking off?

This morning at around 10:30 PST, the Boeing 787 "Dreamliner" took to the gray skies for it's first flight. Piloted by Michael Carriker and Randall Neville, the first flight marks a special achievement by The Boeing Company. For years, many Boeing employees worked very hard to see that this aircraft was built, and finally their hard work on paper, computers, and in the hangar, is now recognized in the skies.

The takeoff was flawless.


There was some doubt whether it would fly today given rainy conditions, but the weather cooperated and the rain held off. Winds were about 9 MPH but moderated by the time it took off. A loud cheer went up at the plane went wheels up. Then for about two minutes, it leveled off and flew low into the horizon.
