Boeing 787

Boeing's new B787 passenger aircraft successfully completed its first test flight in Seattle, US two days ago.

Dubbed as the Dreamliner, it promises to be one of the world's most fuel-efficient planes due to its very lightweight design using carbon and titanium construction materials.

In this day and age of rising fuel costs, it is no wonder that the Dreamliner has attracted some 840 orders from all over with Japan's All Nippon Airlines scheduled to take the first delivery by end 2010.

The 787-8 Dreamliner will carry between 200 to 300 passengers on routes ranging from 5,650 to 15,750 kilometers depending on different versions of the aircraft.

The aircraft looks so sleek and beautiful that aviation enthusiasts would find it hard not to fall in love with it at first sight.

I wonder if MAS is one of those putting an order for one of this aircraft. It would look great in MAS’s colourscheme.
