What great timing! Tom’s first week back as an engineer/scientist at Boeing after eight years away coincided with today’s maiden flight of the beautiful 787 Dreamliner.
What a beautiful aircraft! I just love the lines on this plane – especially the wings. I also like that the Dreamliner is built of new composite materials, is relatively quiet, and uses 20% less gas than other airliners of its size. (Of course I need to draw attention to this, since Tom is involved with Boeing’s environmental efforts!)
The guy who took this video is a typical Boeing employee/enthusiast. I love his enthusiasm!
