  • 787 European road show starts at Le Bourget
    Posted by Guy Norris 11:01 PM on Jun 21, 2011

    Boeing’s first 787, ZA001, touched down at Le Bourget, Paris around 5.30pm local time on June 21, after a 10 hour flight from Boeing Field. The 787’s first visit to the Paris air show marks a dramatic turnaround in fortunes for the program which exactly two years ago was facing increasing uncertainty after revelations of an additional six-month delay to first flight. Fast forward to June 2011 and the 787 is finally poised for certification and initial delivery. The aircraft will be displayed for two days at Paris before flying on to Warsaw, Poland on June 24, followed by Berlin, Germany on June 25.
