Dreamliner Demo

Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner has been in the news a lot lately owing to the ongoing boondoggle with the Li-Ion batteries that apparently have a nasty tendency to catch fire in flight.

While this is definitely a Big Problem, and one that needs to be addressed, I think that the 787 is an amazing piece of technology overall. Fuel efficient, quiet, revolutionary design, good reviews from passengers…once the growing pains are ironed out, the 787 will be a very desirable piece of equipment.

To focus on some of the positive aspects of the Dreamliner, check out this great video and watch the magic as a Qatar Airways 787 demonstrates exactly what this airplane can do.
