Boeing Rolls Out The Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner

February 17, 2017

Boeing yesterday rolled out the 787-10 Dreamliner to the public in a ceremony at the Boeing South Carolina factory where the 787-8 and 787-9 are also assembled. 

 

Thousands of guests and Boeing employees at the North Charleston site celebrated the event, along with U.S. President, Donald Trump and South Carolina Governor, Henry McMaster.

 

In his speech, President Trump said “As your president I’m going to do everything I can to unleash the power of the American spirit and to put our people back to work. This is our mantra: buy American and hire American. We want products made in America, made by American hands.”

 

The Boeing 787-10 will enter flight testing in the coming weeks ahead of certification and delivery to airlines in 2018.

 

The 787-10, the longest model of the Dreamliner family, has won 149 orders from nine customers across the globe. 

 

As an 18-foot (5.5-m) stretch of the 787-9, the 787-10 will carry 330 passengers in a standard two-class configuration and fly up to 6,430 miles.
