Boeing unveils 'green' Dreamliner passenger jet | NEWS.com.au


THE eyes of the aviation world will be fixed on Boeing in Seattle this Sunday (Monday, Australian time) when the US aircraft giant unveils its 787 Dreamliner, the "green" passenger jet it hopes will revolutionise air travel.
The mid-sized plane, which seats up to 330 passengers and is capable of flying long-haul routes using up to 20 per cent less fuel while pumping out fewer greenhouse gases, will be rolled out for 300 gathered media.

This is apparently being shown live on some cable TV channels in the US.

Good possibility that video will also be streamed on the net.

There was a link posted on another forum to some photos of this aircraft. Will try and find it and post here.
