Boeing plans to unveil new planes at upcoming fair

July 11 - The Boeing 787 Dreamliner will make its international debut this month when the doors open on the Farnborough International Airshow outside London. Boeing also will feature an extensive display of new, advanced unmanned systems and technologies.


"Bringing the 787 to Farnborough for thousands in our industry to see for the first time is another exciting historical milestone for this game-changing new airplane," said Tom Downey, senior vice president, Boeing Communications.


"This year we've also chosen Farnborough as the venue for spotlighting many of the breakthrough capabilities and innovations of our advanced unmanned systems. We look forward to an optimistic mood this year as aviation and aerospace leaders meet amid signs of industry recovery."


The 787 flight-test airplane, ZA003, will touch down at Farnborough Airport the morning of Sunday, July 18 and will remain on static display through mid-day July 20. The airplane will be open for tours on a schedule basis July 19 and 20. Boeing is using ZA003 to test and certify seats, galleys and associated cabin safety and comfort systems, among other test points.


Boeing's exhibit at the show will focus on unmanned systems, including the international debut of the recently unveiled Phantom Ray demonstrator, the A160 Hummingbird and the Unmanned Little Bird. The Boeing Unmanned Systems Display will showcase more than a dozen products, including the new Integrator and the ScanEagle Compressed Carriage.
