SEATTLE, Sept. 30, 2011–Boeing’s first 787 Dreamliner will be on public display in The Museum of Flight’s parking lot on Oct. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. A pilot who flew the plane on its historic first flight, Boeing Chief Pilot Randy Neville, will talk about the Dreamliner program during a 1:30 p.m. presentation at the Museum. Visitors with admission to the Museum will have exclusive, up-close viewing privileges of the aircraft. The interior of the plane will not be open to the public. Admission to the Dreamliner lecture is free with admission to the Museum. Museum admission is free to Boeing employees and their families.

Neville will provide an overview of the Dreamliner and its test flights. Since the maiden flight on Dec. 15, 2009, specially outfitted 787s have been actively flying in an extensive and demanding flight program to test the new technologies developed for Dreamliner. The 787 has since achieved FAA certification, and deliveries of new 787 airliners recently began on Sept. 26, 2011.

The Museum of Flight is located at 9404 E. Marginal Way S., Seattle, Exit 158 off Interstate 5 on Boeing Field half-way between downtown Seattle and Sea-Tac Airport. The Museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $16 for adults, $14 for seniors 65 and older, $13 for active military, $9 for youth 5 to 17, and free for children under 5. Group rates are available. Admission on the first Thursday of the month is free from 5 to 9 p.m. courtesy of Wells Fargo.
