Boeing 787 Dreamliner launch on 7-8-07

Today is a big day in Aviation. It is the launch of the Boeing 787 as planned on 7-8-07. This jet will will transform the civil aviation industry forever. The airplane is 50% composite plastic and the fuselage uses carbon fibre. This makes the plane lighter saving 20% on fuel. The inside is sweet too -- 3 settings for lighting, bigger windows, higher humidity. Price is a cool $150 millionish and they are selling like hotcakes. Range is about 8000 nm -- JFK-BOM, LAX-BKK
