The newest project Boeing has is the Boeing 787 Dreamliner which is still in the development process. When the model will be done it will be the most fuel efficient plane in the world. The name of the model ´Dreamliner´ was chosen in the summer of 2003 when the company organized a ‘Name Your Plane’ competition. The name ´Dreamliner´ got over 500.000 votes so that is how the Boeing 787 Dreamliner name was born.Boeing 787 Dreamliner Picture
In order to make the aircraft more efficient the architecture is completely electric, no more traditional hydraulic power sources which means that the pneumatics are gone. To improve the ride during turbulence’s an active gust alleviation system has been implemented in the aircraft. However, if you plan on taking a trip on a zeppelin with the first occasion, you should also look into a free life insurance quote just as a precaution.Boeing 787 Dreamliner Picture
The unusual thing about this model is that it was not built completely, from top to bottom, by the Boeing Company. Almost all of the components were manufactured in different places in the world and assembled in one place. From what we know the central wing box was made in Japan, the horizontal stabilizers were manufactured in Italy, from France was ordered the landing gear, from Sweden the Boeing Company ordered the crew escape doors and last but not least from India the company ordered the floor beams. It took a lot of people to assemble the Boeing 787 Dreamlinerabout 1.200 employees to be exact. The manner in which the construction of the Dreamliner was handled is a perfect example of a globalized and united culture.Boeing 787 Dreamliner Picture
The first attempt to launch the Boeing 787 Dreamliner was in the summer of 2007. The launch did not take place because the employees did not manage to install the system on the plane. Since then the company announced delay after delay until June 2009 when they announced that they were going to make the big launch in Paris at the Paris Air show. What they planned did not match with reality because the manufacturer did not manage to keep his word.
This is the latest model the Boeing 787 Dreamliner which was assembled by the Boeing Company. It is a very modern and powerful aircraft which means that it gets all passengers on time and most of all in one piece. The company finally managed to launch the plane after a lot of attempts and it received a lot of positive reviews. It is strange that a Boeing plane was not made with parts coming from the company but with components coming from all corners of the world. The manufacturer made once again a step towards the modern world.
