The Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, the third member of the 787 Dreamliner family, made its public debut on February 17. Thousands of employees at Boeing’s North Charleston manufacturing site celebrated the event, along with US President Donald Trump and South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster.
The fuselage of the 787-10 is 18ft (5.5m) longer than the 787-9, making it the longest model of the Dreamliner family. The -10 model, built entirely at the Boeing South Carolina plant, will now be prepared for its first flight in the coming weeks. To date, the -10 version of the Dreamliner has received 149 orders from nine customers and the launch customer, Singapore Airlines, will receive its first 787-10 in 2018.
