Boeing Delivers First 787 to All Nippon Airways (ANA)

The world’s first carbon-composite passenger jet was delivered to ANA on September 27, 2011. The plane left Seattle, Washington to be delivered to ANA in Tokyo, Japan. The “Dreamliner” is touted as one the most significant technological improvements in aviation history. It is being delivered three years behind its original schedule and Boeing now has the task of delivering on a backlog of 820 more planes. They have set the goal to ramp up production to 10 per month by the end of 2013.
