Final Dreamlifter Enters Service

February 16, 2010, 11:03 AM

The fourth Boeing Dreamlifter–the final airplane in the fleet of 747-400s specially modified to carry large sections of composite parts for the 787–entered service today, the manufacturer announced this afternoon. Dreamlifters transport the structures from partners around the world to Everett, Wash., for final assembly. Modified by Evergreen Aviation Technologies in Taipei, Taiwan, the airplane took off from Paine Field in Everett early this morning. Bound for Wichita, Kans., the Dreamlifter returned equipment used to transport the forward fuselage section known as section 41, built by Spirit Aerosystems.
