Flight of fancy, 787 style

Most of the time, when a plane takes off and lands, that’s not news. It’s only when it fails to take off or land that we get news.

Today’s an exception, however, because Boeing’s newest plane design, the 787 Dreamliner, took off and landed for the first time. Sure, it was two years late, but at least they didn’t lose anyone’s luggage.

Various Washington politicos marked the event with official statements of best wishes, which can be found inside the blog. One thing you might notice is the emphasis on Washington workers doing a great job in building the plane…as opposed to say, South Carolina workers which Boeing is going to be using for its second assembly line.

But hey, after Washington workers figure out how to get it flying, South Carolina workers can just follow their instructions, right?
