With the launch of its superjumbo, the A380, Airbus made what looked like an unbeatable bid for commercial aviation supremacy. But archrival Boeing responded: Not so fast. Boeing's 787 Dreamliner has already generated more excitement--and more orders--than any commercial airplane in the company's history. This book offers a fascinating behind-the-scenes look at the first all-new airplane developed by Boeing since its 1990 launch of the 777. With hundreds of photographs, Boeing 787 Dreamliner closely details the design and building of Boeing's new twin-engine jet airliner, as well as the drama behind its launch. Here are the key players, the controversies, the critical decisions about materials and technology--the plastic reinforced with carbon fiber that will make this mid-sized widebody super lightweight. And here, from every angle, is the Dreamliner itself, in all its gleaming readiness to rule the air.

Very good read. Not too technical. Would benefit from a glossary. Also needs an update on battery problems.

Exceptional detail fills this book up to first flight. The color photos are well narrated. This is a book for aviation enthusiasts, both professional and amateur. Must follow or precede a similar reading of the development of the A380. The comparisons and contrast s between the two sagas and aircraft are riveting reading to say the least.
