Boeing unveiled their newest airplane this evening, a fully assembled 787 “Dreamliner.” Rumor has it that the aircraft isn’t actually airworthy, as it is missing internal parts from some of the many subcontractors responsible for sourcing the parts for the plane. Nonetheless, the plane is pretty impressive, made primarily of carbon composites instead of metal and much lighter and more efficient than previous generations of planes. Delivery of the first production bird is due in Spring ’08 to ANA.
I can’t wait to add another aircraft type to my list!
