It is back to the hangar for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner after it was unveiled on Sunday to a crowd of 15,000 people, mainly Boeing workers, past and present and customers.

The aircraft is not ready for flight yet because a number of parts have not been installed, so it's back to the factory for the 787, says Seattle Post-Intelligencer aerospace reporter James Wallace.

The aircraft is scheduled to stage its first flight in either August or September.
