Boeing 787 Dreamliner
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner is an American wide-body, twin-engine long-haul jet airliner and the first airliner constructed mainly of composite materials. The maiden flight took place on December 15, 2009, entering service on October 26, 2011, with All Nippon Airways. The stretched 787-9 first flew on September 2013, starting service on August 7, 2014, again with All Nippon Airways. In early service, the aircraft had several problems with its lithium-ion batteries, including fires.
The airframe structure by weight is 50% composite, 20% aluminium, along with titanium and steel. The fuselage is a semi-monocoque design with cantilevered low mounted sweep back wings and raked wingtips. The cantilevered tail unit is a conventional swept design with a single fin and tailplanes. The retractable undercarriage is a tricycle type mount in the wing root and folding inwards into the fuselage; the steerable nose wheel retracts forward. Flight crew consists of two pilots with a passenger cabin that seats 242 to 335 passengers in a typical three-class layout, depending on variant.
Powered by two General Electric GEnx-1B or Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 high-bypass turbofan engines, pod mounted one under each wing with noise-reducing serrated edges (chevrons) nacelles. Giving the B787-9 a cruise speed of 903 km/h (561 mph), a maximum speed of 956 km/h (594 mph), a 13,100 m (43,000 ft) service ceiling and a range of 14,140 km (8,786 mi).
