Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The '''Boeing 787 ''Dreamliner''''' is a mid-sized, wide-body, twin engine jet [[:Category:Airliners|airliner]] currently under development by [[:Category:Boeing|Boeing]] Commercial Airplanes. It will carry between 210 and 330 passengers depending on variant and seating configuration. Boeing has stated that it will be more fuel-efficient than earlier Boeing airliners and will also be the first major airliner to use composite materials for most of its construction. Boeing's development of the 787 is also innovative in the collaborative management approach with suppliers.
Until January 28, 2005, the [[File:787 was known by the developmental designator 7E7-cockpit-up. Early released concept images depicted a radical design with highly curved surfaces.
