787-10 Dreamliner first flight


The first flight of a new airplane is one of the most exciting moments here at Boeing. And I hope you were able to tune into today’s webcast of the 787-10’s first flight at Boeing South Carolina.

While the weather forecast looked dire all week, the storms ended and our pilots were able to get the airplane up a few minutes earlier than planned.

For four hours and 58 minutes, Captains Tim Berg and Mike Bryan put the 787-10 through its paces by performing tests on flight controls, systems and handling qualities. Both said the airplane handled beautifully.

Thanks to our employees, our customers and our suppliers for helping us reach this milestone. Please enjoy the highlights webpage featuring more photos and video.

    I recently purchased a model 787-10 which I proudly display in my office. Boeing airplanes are the best.

    Boeing truly leads the pack in terms of innovation & convenience! I'd been flying them for 15 years now as a pilot & each flight takes me back to the my first ever flight!

    I really enjoyed my visit to the factory in Renton a few years ago. I live in North Carolina, so I wonder if the Charleston factory has tours. Thanks!

      We don't currently have public tours in Charleston, but we are working on it!
