View Full Version : The Boeing 787 Dreamliner - and I - visit DFW

Yesterday, Boeing Dreamline ZA003 arrived at DFW and I was lucky enough to be on an adjacent runway watching (naturally I brought my camera).

ZA003 is the aircraft that is on tour, on the Boeing Dream Tour specifically. The tour started in China last December and was most recently in Washington, D.C. before coming to DFW.

After the aircraft landed, it received a "Shower of Appreciation" water cannon salute and pulled into an AA maintenance hangar where hundreds of AA employees were there to greet it.

Below are a few of my photos (the first is right after landing as it passes in front of my lens on the runway; the second is pulling into the hangar; the third is after a new 737-800 with Sky Interior pulled up behind the 787).

I created three virtual tour/slide shows of the landing, the shower/water cannon/hangar arrival, and the interior. Go to Boeing Dreamliner: A Virtual Tour (http://www.frequentbusinesstraveler.com/2012/05/boeings-dreamliner-a-virtual-tour-and-review/) for the three slide shows.

I look forward to an opportunity to fly on this aircraft when it is in service out of IAD.
