Flight of fancy...too?

(Official poster for upcoming IMAX film)

Coming soon to IMAX theatres.
(Near you?)

According to Boeing's website, the first flight of the 787 "Dreamliner" is expected this year, with certification, delivery and entry into service occurring in 2008.

I posted previously about the Airbus A380, so I guess it's only fair to give Boeing equal time...especially since they've paid me hundreds of thousands of dollars over the years.
(Which I earned, of course)

Lots of background and specifications on the 787 "Dreamliner" are at the Wikipedia site, and there's an excellent article at the Aerospace Technology website, too.

One more article HERE...

Boeing also paid me "hundreds" of dollars many years ago! I quit em. They said: "No one quits Boeing---they get layed off". I said: "Two weeks from now, look around and see if I'm here"... If they did---I wasn't.

Funny...when I gave notice to my previous employer (twenty some years ago) that I had accepted employment at Boeing, the big boss' brother-in-law (OOH! Alliteration!!!) told me not to expect to get my job back when Boeing laid me off in a year or two. So I haven't. I wonder if that place is still in business...
