    The 787 Dreamliner arrives at Farnborough airshow, its a very good looking aircraft. I love the look of the engines. Heres a few links that have got video's.

    Just had a look on Casper at Farnborough for yesterday. I found it making a fly past at 8:57am and then going around over Guildford to make a final approach at 9:07 and landing on UK tarmac at 9:09am. Is this the first landing of a 787 in the UK. I think the call sign is BOE787. All for now.

    787 deliveries , RR blew up !!

    In August, Boeing announced it was pushing back the delivery of its first 787 to All Nippon Airways of Japan by three months to mid-February 2011. Boeing originally planned to deliver its first 787 in May 2008. On Friday, Boeing reaffirmed the February delivery.

    Boeing attributed the delay in August to the availability of Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines, which are one of two engines offered on the Dreamliner. During testing this summer, a Trent 1000 engine suffered an uncontained failure on a test bed, meaning it blew up.

    Plenty Boeing news here

    Boeing better start ironing the problems out with the 787, or i can see all airlines that have placed orders getting fed up with the delay after delay, and canx, i know Boeing has had problems with new build aircraft in the past and delayed deliveries, but delays were not that long like it is with this new build.
