Boeing confirms it will build the 7E7 Dreamliner
Associated Press reports that Boeing will introduce the 7E7 Dreamliner into the market around 2008. Seating between 200 and 250 passengers with a range of 8,300 miles, the 7E7 will come in three models and is intended as a replacement for the 767 and 757 aircraft. Significant use of composites and advances in technology will allow the aircraft to realise fuel economies in the order of 20% over similar aircraft.
'Bout time Boeing pulled their finger out and gave Airbus a run for their money.
