Historic First Boeing 787 Dreamliner on Display at Museum Oct. 9

Date: 
09/30/2011

 

 

Free Museum admission for Boeing employees and their families

 

SEATTLE, Sept. 30, 2011--Boeing's first 787 Dreamliner will be on public display in The Museum of Flight's parking lot on Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A pilot who flew the plane on its historic first flight, Boeing Chief Pilot Randy Neville, will talk about the Dreamliner program during a 1:30 p.m. presentation at the Museum. Visitors with admission to the Museum will have exclusive, up-close viewing privileges of the aircraft. The interior of the plane will not be open to the public. Admission to the Dreamliner lecture is free with admission to the Museum. Museum admission is free to Boeing employees and their families.  

Neville will provide an overview of the Dreamliner and its test flights. Since the maiden flight on Dec. 15, 2009, specially outfitted 787s have been actively flying in an extensive and demanding flight program to test the new technologies developed for Dreamliner. The 787 has since achieved FAA certification, and deliveries of new 787 airliners recently began on Sept. 26, 2011.
