    Boeing 787 Dreamliner in traffic , NEWS (Cont.)

    At long last, Boeing Co.’s first 787 Dreamliner is set to be delivered to Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways on Monday ending the anticipation among aviation enthusiasts who thought this day may never come.
    Once expected by May 2008, delivery has been delayed several times, and passenger-ready planes are now expected on the runway by fall. It will be the first new class of aircraft launched by Boeing since the 777 in 1995.
    The 787 Dreamliner is an all-new commercial jetliner that Boeing says is the most advanced, fuel-stingy passenger jet ever made. It features a suite of new technologies such as the industry's largest windows, a more electric architecture and an extensive use of strong, lightweight carbon composites.
    Boeing will broadcast a live celebration of the first delivery of the Dreamliner to All Nippon on its website starting at 9 a.m. PDT.
    The webcast and live satellite feed will include special activities at the Boeing Everett, Wash., site with Boeing and All Nippon’s employees and executives.

    Dream a reality as Boeing's new carbon-fibre 787 Dreamliner , NEW age

    New age , NEW thread, time to leave the old before thread

    nice graphichs

    Aluminium has been the standard material used in aircraft for more than a century - even the Wright brothers' famous first flight in 1903 used an aircraft made partially from the metal. But the 'aluminium age' could be about to end - with the delivery of the first large-scale commercial aircraft made using 50 per cent 'composite materials' including plastics and carbon fibre.
    The much-delayed Boeing Dreamliner 787 has a range of 10,000 miles, is far quieter than ordinary jets, and is constructed using a 'moulding' process that has eliminated 1,500 aluminum sheets and 50,000 fasteners. It's also three years late - and has cost a reported $32billion.
    Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 programme, said: 'It took a lot of hard work to get to this day.'
