Boeing B787-10 Completes First Flight


Boeing has completed the first flight of its B787-10 Dreamliner aircraft, a year ahead of the expected first delivery.

The journey lasted four hours and 58 minutes while running tests on systems, flight controls and handling qualities.

The B787-10 aircraft, which was first revealed to the public in February, can accommodate up to 310 passengers and is 5.5 metres longer than the B787-9. This makes it the longest aircraft in the manufacturer’s Dreamliner family.

“The 787-10’s first flight moves us one step closer to giving our customers the most efficient airplane in its class,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Kevin McAllister.

“The airplane will give carriers added flexibility in growing their network routes and build on the overwhelming success of the 787 Dreamliner family.”
