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
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.
