The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is a mid-sized, wide body, twin engined jet airliner by Boeing’s Commercial Airplanes unit and scheduled to enter service in May 2008. It will carry between 210 and 330 passengers depending on variant and seating configuration. Boeing has stated that it will be more fuel-efficient than comparable earlier Boeing airliners. It is also be the first major airliner to use composite material for most of its construction.

    Its wingspan is incredibly long for that size of airliner.

    Hi Roman,
    these 787 pics are not “mine” since I didn’t shot them. I just re-published them. But I added some of my Airbus A380 pics and one Ju-52 pic to your Flickr Pool. :)
    You can find my A380 pics also here: http://blog.flightstory.net/9/my-a380-photos/

    Someday I will probably add some more of my pictures to Flickr. I have some good pics left on some CDs/DVDs that got however rejected at a.net ;)

    Grüße in die Schweiz ;)

    Final Assembly on Line #1 is far from complete. These are pictures of a carbon shell, and 787 roll-out is a 1 Billion dollar dog and pony show.
