As if we couldn’t see this one coming a mile away. Boeing will hold its first public unveiling of the very first 787 airframe off the line on July 8th, 2007. I, for one, can hardly wait. With over 400 firm orders already placed, I can see the 787 easily having 1000 or more by the time Airbus’ A350 is ready to enter service.
Boeing Co. plans to debut its much-anticipated 787 Dreamliner model on July 8 at an event at its assembly plant in Everett, Washington, the plane maker said on Wednesday.
The mid-sized 787 aircraft, which uses lightweight carbon composite material to reduce operating costs, has racked up roughly $70 billion in orders in about three years on the market.
At the event—to be held on 7/8/07, according to American dating conventions—the public will be able to see the aircraft fully assembled for the first time.
