All Nippon Airways (ANA), the Dreamliner’s original launch customer took contractual delivery in a ceremony hosted by Boeing.  This milestone follows the first maiden flight of the 787 conducted in December 2009 and after a number resets of the delivery schedule.

When you view the video you will hear one Boeing employee sum it all up: “after years of effort, energy and sacrifices”, the day has come.  Other videos on the launch web site provide a glimpse of the modern technology offered by this aircraft.

This is a time for all to celebrate this achievement.

After this week’s celebrations, Boeing will again turn its attention toward delivery of over 800 backordered Dreamliners and a production plan that involves two final assembly plants on opposite U.S. coasts.
