Following the life of this aircraft from its initial inception to the delivery of the first production models, this book begins with Boeing's initial thoughts concerning a new wide-body transport, how the original concept changes over a period of months of discussion, and finally, a description of the final configuration. The reasoning that went into the final design is explored. Many of the new and unique features of this airplane are carefully described. The complex and basically original manufacturing process is examined, as is the logistics system developed to move large subassemblies economically and on time. The many features that Boeing incorporated into the 787 for both safety and greatly increased passenger comfort are all brought forth and explained in layman's language. The book also delves into some of the frustrating problems that the 787 team encountered. Component and flight testing is also included, as are appendices that collect information, such as specifications of the various 787 models and a listing of sales by carrier to date. Throughout the author has tried to relate the story of the Dreamliner with honesty and with a view to who might be reading the book.
