We present a 5 GHz VLBI image of the compact steep spectrum (CSS) quasar 3C287. The source has been one of the candidate precessing CSS sources. Both static features and large structural changes are observed since the earliest VLBI experiments. The overall picture does not seem to support a precessing jet scenario.
