Boeing Delivers First 787 Three Years Late

After three years of production and design delays, Boeing delivered its first 787 Dreamliner to All Nippon Airways at a handover ceremony in Everett, WA, Monday, Sept. 26.

ANA signed delivery papers Sunday, and plans to fly its new jet from Seattle to Tokyo on Tuesday, Sept. 27, the Associated Press says.

The plane was originally scheduled for delivery in 2008, but was delayed by production and design problems, including an electrical fire during a test flight.

Airlines have ordered more than 800 of the Dreamliner. The plane is covered in lightweight carbon fiber instead of aluminum, and should give fuel savings and offer passengers greater comfort, the AP says.
