Boeing's Dreamliner Takes Flight
Behind-the-scenes look at the new quieter, more fuel-efficient airplane
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner made its first test flight in Europe over the weekend. The new commercial plane is quieter and more fuel efficient than planes now in the air. When it was announced three years ago, it became the fastest-selling commercial jet in history. Delivery has been delayed six times, but Boeing announced this week that its first customer, Japan's All Nipon Airline, should receive a finished product by the end of this year or early 2011.
