Description

The Birth of the Dreamliner captures the awe and achievement of this ambitious chapter of aviation history, and will act as a "biography" of the aircraft, following the evolution of the 787 concept through its path to completion. In full collaboration with Boeing, The Birth of the Dreamliner is an access-all-areas insight into how this intricate, complex machine has been engineered in response to a dream. The Dreamliner heralds a new era in air travel. The components of the Dreamliner are sourced from more than 130 sites around the world, and then transported by the largest cargo freighters ever built, specially customized 747s called Dreamlifters. Stunning photography illustrates the meticulous undertaking of transporting wings and fuselage sections to the Dreamliner's final assembly point at the Boeing facility in Everett, Washington, the world's biggest building. You will see how the sophisticated interiors take shape along the assembly line of parts and tools, with in-depth interviews from key personnel, creators, and technicians. This is a quintessential archive of an unprecedented aircraft program.show more
