Four Videos from the Boeing 787 First Delivery in Everett, WA

September 30, 2011 at 4:40 PM | by | ()

As you probably well know by now, we spent several days this week up at Boeing HQ in Everett, WA, peeking around the 787 Dreamliner factory and the actual thing out on the tarmac. We've showed you everything from the slick exterior and interior to the "airplane supermarket," and of course the ginormous factory line.

We captured more than photos, however; there's video too, including the Dreamliner's First Delivery Flight as she takes off for her home with ANA in Tokyo. Here's a few quick videos from our days at the Boeing 787 First Delivery event:

Inside the Boeing 787 Dreamliner Factory Line

September 29, 2011 at 5:06 PM | by | ()

It is the domain of the chosen: The Boeing 787 Dreamliner factory floor in Everett, WA. The many, many workers underneath this roof are among the brightest and most dedicated, their desks spotless and the building quiet on a Sunday. As one of the small number of people who are invited to visit all the way down to the factory floor, we were honored to get right up close to tomorrow's crop of Dreamliner, still either being put together from pieces at one end, to being shined up on the other.

So, You Want To Buy A Boeing 787 Dreamliner?

September 28, 2011 at 3:59 PM | by | ()

So, you wan to buy a Boeing 787 Dreamliner? Our first question is: do you have between $190 million and $220 million dollars? Our second question: do you have somewhere to park it?

If you've answered to both questions above, then it's high time you paid a visit to Boeing's Dreamliner Gallery, a 787 shopping mall of sorts, where airline customers come to pick out all the goodies they want inside—from seats to bun warmers. It's a nice building all its own, and pretty much a playground for anyone who enjoys airplanes.

There's an entire room just for economy, business class and first class seat options, and a wall of TVs for in-flight entertainment choice. Lavatories galore, crew galleys empty of their ovens, and a another wall just for showcasing the variety of ovens and coffee makers that may be installed.

The celebration is still going strong today in Everett, WA as Boeing and ANA welcome the first finished and delivered 787 Dreamliner to the skies. We mean literally, as today focused on seeing off the fresh bird as she took flight towards her new home in Tokyo.

It's been a long and different road for all parties involved in the 787, and it's crazy to step inside and walk the aisles, sit in the seats, poke the seatback TV screens, and think all the sweat that went into this moment.

We won't bother with the colorful adjectives as the photos speak for themselves. And now, the interior of ANA's Boeing 787 Dreamliner:

Our First Photos of ANA's New Boeing 787 Dreamliner

September 26, 2011 at 4:25 PM | by | ()

Today is First Delivery Day in Everett, WA. It's almost like a mini holiday, considering how many people, how many years, how many innovations make up the history of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Now that the "key" has officially been handed over, with pomp and circumstance, to ANA's President and CEO Shinichiro Ito, it's time to delve into the guts of this fresh bird.

All this week we'll be taking you inside the places Boeing took us inside, even including the 787 factory floor. To begin the series, we can think of nothing more appetite-whetting than drooling over the exterior of ANA's 787, tail number JA802A, parked out back behind the Boeing factory in a line of shiny, freshly finished planes:

Jaunted Reporting Live: How to Follow Our Adventures During the Boeing 787 First Delivery

September 23, 2011 at 6:43 PM | by | ()

Have you heard enough about Boeing's new 787 Dreamliner? Hopefully not, because the fancy schmancy new airplane hasn't even been delivered to its first airline yet. That is, until this upcoming Monday it hasn't.

That's right—Monday marks the official delivery of the 787 to All Nippon Airways, an international airline based in Japan and an airline champing at the bit with excitement over the occasion. They'll get the keys to the bird, itself sporting some pretty flashy new livery—check out a rendering of that here. Needless to say, this whole event is a huge deal for travel, aviation, business, technology and the good ol' US of A, and we'll be there for it all.

Landing in Seattle bright and early Sunday morning (after some 20-ish hours of flying from Southeast Asia), we'll be sharing our experiences at Boeing facilities, on the tarmac and in the briefing rooms as much as humanly (and technically) possible. Here's how to follow along for all our hot and bothered 787 excitement:
