Boeing took the 787 Dreamliner on a record-setting 10,710-mile flight

A Boeing 787 Dreamliner — the sixth 787 Boeing's made so far — took off from Boeing Field in Seattle in December 6, 2011. Yesterday, it landed in Dhaka, Bangladesh, having flown 10,710 nautical miles to set a distance record for a commercial jet of its weight. It's also a victory, of sorts, for carbon fiber. » 12/08/11 4:30pm 12/08/11 4:30pm
