Plastic jet


Spent the day at Boeing’s factory where the new Dreamliner 787 is now being built.

Apart from the factory being the biggest in the world (it builds Jumbos after all) the Dreamliner is going to be amazing.

More humidity, less turbulence is going to help frequent fliers like myself avoid feeling like they’ve been hit over the head with a cricket bat.

Although the thought of flying in a plastic jet (it’s actually carbon composite) will take a little getting used to.

But at least my cameraman John Varga won’t be at the controls!
