NAM Member Company, Boeing, introduced its second member of the Dreamliner family today. The first flight of the new, innovative 787-9 successfully took place today at 1:30pm EST.
Boeing has always had a reputation for manufacturing advancements in air travel and they have done it again today with their new plane manufactured in Everett, WA. The new 787-9 will carry more passengers, cargo, and has the ability to travel further than any other 787. It is a more capable and efficient airplane than those that came before it. The entire Boeing team, from the designers, engineers, executives and the men and women on the shop floor deserve a round of applause for taking air travel to the next level.
The NAM congratulates Boeing on delivering another state-of-the-art and efficient means of travel to customers around the world.
