Boeing will bring its 787-8 demonstrator to seven cities in the U.K., Norway, Italy and the U.S. on the sixth leg of the Boeing 787 Dream Tour of the world later this month and in May.
“The Dream Tour has provided us with a great platform to show customers, partners, government officials and other stakeholders just what the team has achieved with the 787,” said Larry Loftis, vice president and general manager of the Boeing 787 program. “It’s an honor to showcase this airplane as we bring it around the world.”
