Everett, Washington, July 8, 2007—Visitors crowd around the first production model of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner airplane after it was unveiled to an audience of several thousand during a ceremony at Boeing's assembly plant.

The 787, the first new plane by Boeing since 1995, will be the world's first large commercial plane made mostly of carbon-fiber composites—materials that are lighter and less prone to corrosion than aluminum.

Boeing Chief Executive Jim McNerney said the 787 will be a "dramatic improvement in air travel: to make it more affordable, comfortable, and convenient for passengers; more efficient and profitable for airlines; and more environmentally progressive for our Earth", the Associated Press reported.
