The first Boeing 787 Dreamliner that
will enter into service completed its first flight on Sept. 1,
2011 in Everett, Wash. The airplane followed a route over Western Washington, where it underwent tests for basic
handling qualities and engine performance. The completion of this first test
flight is another important milestone on the path toward first delivery. The
airplane’s delivery to ANA will be celebrated on Sept. 26 in Everett, Wash.
