Revolutionary new Boeing Dreamliner poised for takeoff
from USA Today
The world's first jet to be made mostly of carbon fiber, instead of traditional aluminum and steel, is poised to carry passengers for the first time when Japanese carrier All Nippon Airways flies from Tokyo to Hong Kong with 264 travelers on board. The flight is a coming-out party for a jet that reflects the biggest change in aircraft construction since metal replaced wooden biplanes. The Dreamliner's relatively light weight and aerodynamic features promise to cut fuel costs up to 20 percent and enable airlines to reap profits from new non-stop routes.
