Putting It All Together

As I've been hinting about for a while, I have just completed a second video installment following the assembly of Dreamliner One. As you may remember, the first installment documented the journey all the 787 parts underwent to arrive in Everett for final assembly. Over the last seven weeks, managers, engineers and machinists alike at the Boeing Company have worked tirelessly at all hours, day and night, to assemble the world's first composite commercial aircraft.

The video provides a unique glimpse into the assembly; highlighting the major milestones that will culminate in the roll out this coming Sunday in Everett. From its beginnings as Project Yellowstone, the 787 has come together with this blogger, and the world, watching attentively. Never has so much information been available to the general public about the assembly of a new aircraft.

Please enjoy the video below; leave your comments and know that none of this could be possible without the near superhuman efforts of the good people of Boeing Commercial Airplanes and the 787 program.

My hat is off to you all.

Some earlier comnents said the 787 engines looked so big. They have to be to maintain flight on one engine as FAA requires. On the B777 one of the engines has more thrust than all 8 of the early model B-52 engines combined that had 11,500 pounds of thrust each on a good day. Such is the progress of jet engine technology over the last 50 years or so.

Thank you, I'm flattered you say that. I made the video myself, wasn't leaked, and I'm definitely NOT a Boeing employee!

Ahhh ..... I hate to say this but I had tears in my eyes at the end. The music, the action, the plane. That video was incredable. My eyes are always to the sky!
