Falls Church School Board Member-elect Justin Castillo was privileged to get a look inside Boeing’s new 787 Dreamliner aircraft last week on the plane’s maiden flight to Reagan National Airport. The new wide-body plane made its first landing at DCA as part of a goodwill tour around the country.
The 787 includes numerous new features including larger windows and higher cabin pressurization to increase passenger comfort. It also has a carbon fiber fuselage, a sophisticated new wing and high-efficiency engines to cut fuel consumption by as much as 20% over the aircraft it will replace.
Boeing’s new aircraft should be an increasingly common sight in our skies beginning later in 2012, but its size and range make it a better fit for long-haul flights out of Dulles International Airport. While the new Boeing plane landed with ease on DCA’s relatively short main runway, the airport’s taxiways were not designed to handle the plane’s 197-foot wingspan as part of routine operations.
