Environment-friendly aircraft on skies

Updated on : Thursday, January 21, 2010

LONDON: Painted in Boeing blue and white, the fuel-efficient wide-body jetliner eased off the runway near its factory 30 miles north of Seattle into a cloudy sky for a four-hour foray around Puget Sound and inland Washington State.

The Dreamliner’s first test flight is more than two years behind its original schedule due to labor and supply problems.

The aircraft gained popularity due to its environment-friendly, fuel-efficient features. It will consume 20 percent less fuel as compared to the other jetliners.
