Boeing’s new 787-10 completes initial flight
More than 5,000 Boeing employees and others were in North Charleston, USA, to watch the biggest model of the twin-aisle 787 Dreamliner make its first flight on Friday.
Unlike the two earlier 787 versions, which are constructed and tested at Puget Sound near Seattle, the new 787-10 will be built only in South Carolina. The plane will fly to Seattle to continue testing.
The flight lasted nearly five hours, cruising back and forth before returning to base.
There are 149 orders for the 10 model, the biggest customers being Singapore Airlines and Etihad Airways, with 30 planes ordered each.
“We had a great flight today. This is a really great airplane,” said Tim Berg, the Dreamliner program’s chief pilot.
