Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner Finishes First Flight
On March 31st 2017, there was an article posted on Boeing which talks about how the Dreamliner, Boeing 787-10, just completed its first flight that day. The 787 Dreamliner is the newest release and longest model of the 787 family. The Dreamliner took off at Boeing’s South Carolina facility.
Here is what Kevin McAllister the Commercial Airplanes President and CEO has to say about this. “The 787-10’s first flight moves us one step closer to giving our customers the most efficient airplane in its class. The airplane will give carriers added flexibility in growing their network routes and build on the overwhelming success of the 787 Dreamliner family.”
There will be more testing for the 787-10 that will be going on before many customers take delivery in the beginning of 2018.
It seems like everything went smoothly, just as Boeing’s chief 787 pilot expected, Tim Berg. “From takeoff to landing, the airplane handled beautifully and just as expected. The 787-10 is a fantastic machine that I know our customers and their passengers will love.”
