Boeing 787-10 makes first flight in Charleston
Boeing Co. 787-10 Dreamliner, the company's newest and longest plane in the 787 family, completed a successful five-hour flight on Friday in SC, the company said.
During the roughly five-hour first flight, test pilots Tim Berg and Mike Bryan commanded the airplane to an altitude of 20,000 feet and a top speed of 200 knots.
"The 787-10's first flight moves us one step closer to giving our customers the most efficient airplane in its class", Boeing Airplanes President Kevin McAllister said in a statement. In a typical seating configuration, Boeing says the 787-10 will seat about 330 passengers - or about 40 more than a 787-9 would in a similar layout. Airlines can choose engines from General Electric Co of the USA, or Britain's Rolls-Royce Holdings PLC.
The 787-10 has won 149 orders from nine customers across the globe including launch customer Singapore Airlines, Air Lease Corporation (ALC), All Nippon Airways (ANA), British Airways, Etihad Airways, EVA Air, GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS), KLM Royal Dutch Airlines and United Airlines. Its 787-8 and 787-9 family members are assembled in both North Charleston, and Everett, Wash.
Federal Bureau of Investigation publishes never-before-seen images of 9/11 Pentagon terrorist attack
One of the pictures shows rescue workers with sniffer dogs searching the rubble for survivors or bodies. The attack resulted in 189 deaths, of which 125 were Pentagon employees.
The 787-10 is essentially an 18-foot stretch of the 787-9.
Boeing will have three of the twin-aisle 787-10s in the test and certification program that is expected to last about a year. "We have learned a lot across our development programmes".
The 787-10 is a long haul airplane, featuring brand new engine and system designs as well as a better cabin experience for passengers. The planes in the Dreamliner family now fly 560 routes worldwide.
A new Dreamliner variant also means more work for Spirit AeroSystems, a supplier to the 787 and other Boeing airplanes. It is comprised of more than 2.3 million parts made around the world and is capable of flying long-range routes that previously weren't possible.
