Long Beach Airport is one of the many stops in March during Boeing's "787 Dream Tour" - a global expedition to show off its next-generation commercial aircraft, the 787 Dreamliner.
The 787 touched down quietly at 10 this morning. But the action starts tomorrow when Boeing partners and the media are invited to view the 787 up close. The jet holds up to 250 passengers and has a flight range of up to 8,200 nautical miles. Passengers can expect larger windows, six-stage atmospheric lighting, larger bins for luggage storage and more sophisticated air filtration.
After Long Beach, the jet will visit Salt Lake City befire heading to South America.
