Boeing 787 Ready to Fly!

Post by Saint_ »

I saw pics of this remarkable aircraft on the news today, besides the amazing carbon-fiber and plastic airframe, the interior is extremely cool! It has bigger windows that instantly darken (LCD technology) more legroom, oversize carry-on cabinets, its much lighter than other planes and gets excellent fuel savings at the same time it operates quieter. Even the pilots get better views and the avionics are state-of-the-art!

Man... I'd sure like to fly one of those babies!:-2

The flight deck look very Star Treky. Wonder how long all the legroom will last once the airlines get their hands on them..:thinking:

How many do you expect to have been delivered to customers by, say, the end of next year?

Ooooh, it is really an extremely beautiful aircraft. Looks so cool.

Hmmm, I guess it is already flying in the sky now.
