Airshow-Boeing Dreamliner makes first overseas landing

FARNBOROUGH, England, July 18 (BestGrowthStock) – Boeing’s (BA.N: )
new 787 Dreamliner touched down in Britain on Sunday on its
first trip outside the United States, thrilling hordes of eager
planespotters who came out to see the breakthrough
carbon-composite plane.

It is expected to take the spotlight at next week’s
Farnborough Airshow and was the talk of British TV and Twitter
in the moments leading up to its landing. Last-minute technical
issues had raised some fears in recent weeks that the plane
might not make its long-anticipated trip to the show.

The aircraft promises greater fuel efficiency, and its
lightweight materials and innovative design have captured the
imagination of both the industry and the broader aviation fan
community. Dozens of journalists and throngs of flight
enthusiasts assembled near the runway to watch the landing.
