Birth of a Dream

Get ready to fly in style. The first Boeing 787 Dreamliner finished
assembly Tuesday night in Everett, Washington. Local aviation lover
Charles Conklin pulled a James Bond to snap some rare photos, waiting
with camera in hand until the hangar gates opened and revealed the
future of commercial flight.

The Dreamliner makes its official debut
July 8, and could make its first flight later this summer. And though
the interior design does look enticing, we're also excited about the
new air filtration system, which Boeing says will make for a much more
comfortable flight. Arriving at your destination without a
sandpaper-dry throat and a headache sounds like heaven.—Gregory Mone
