Dreamliner Joins Boeing Line At Le Bourget

Airliner To Be On Display Through Thursday

Boeing's first 787 Dreamliner, ZA001, has joined the line up of the company's airplanes on display at the Paris Air Show. The all-new jetliner will be on display for the next two days.

"We are making great progress toward finishing certification of the 787 with Rolls-Royce Package A engines," said Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 program. "It's an honor to bring the 787 to the Paris Air Show on behalf of all of the hard working men and women around the world who have designed and built this amazing airplane."

Wednesday at 1100 local time, ANA, the launch customer for the 787 program, will make a special announcement from the Boeing airplane display area. In addition, leaders of the international partners contributing to the 787 program will meet on board the airplane, and members from Boeing Team France, the supplier team located in France, will have dedicated time on the airplane.

The 787-8, the first member of the 787 family of jetliners, is a twin-aisle airplane that accommodates 210-250 passengers on routes between 7,650 and 8,200 miles – making it the only mid-size airplane capable of long-range routes.

More than 800 787s are on order by more than 50 airlines, a testament to the airplane's unique capabilities. Launch customer ANA is expected to take delivery of the first 787 in August or September.
