Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, P-8A Poseidon Make First Airshow Appearances

Both To Be On Display, Conduct Demonstration Flights At Farnborough

Boeing has confirmed that the new 787-9 Dreamliner and the P-8A Poseidon will participate for the first time in flying displays at the Farnborough International Airshow, which runs July 14-20. This year's airshow marks the 40th anniversary of Boeing's participation at Farnborough. The 787-9 – flight test airplane ZB001 -- will be on static and flying display from July 14 through mid-day July 18.

The P-8A, a military derivative of the company's Next-Generation 737-800, is a multi-mission aircraft that provides advanced anti-submarine and anti-surface warfare capabilities for the U.S. Navy and Indian Navy (P-8I). It will join Boeing's multi-role F/A-18E/F Super Hornet fighter in demonstrating versatile capabilities during daily flying displays. Both aircraft also will be on static display.

Boeing is working with customers and partners to bring several other aircraft to the show, including Qatar Airways' Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, which will be on static display July 14-18. The Boeing Maritime Surveillance Aircraft (MSA) will also be on static display, making its debut at Farnborough. Built on the Bombardier Challenger 605 business jet, the Boeing MSA leverages P-8 mission systems to provide maritime and overland surveillance, anti-piracy, coastal security and search-and-rescue capabilities. 

Together with the Royal Aeronautical Society, Boeing is presenting airplanes built by students from the "Schools Build a Plane Challenge" – an initiative providing young people in UK secondary schools with the opportunity to learn new skills by building an operational light aircraft from a kit. Two aircraft, constructed by students from Yateley School, close to Farnborough in Hampshire and Marling School in Gloucestershire, are scheduled to participate in the flying display on Futures Day, Friday, July 18, and remain on static display for the public weekend.
