Sweet Dream(liner)s are made like this

Ever wondered how Boeing manufactures their colossal 787-9 Dreamliner? Me too. To finally put an end to that wonder, the team at BA has released a video to shed a little light on the subject.

British Airways recently welcomed the arrival of it’s first 787-9 Dreamliner, and has celebrated with the release of a brilliant time-lapse video showing it the Dreamliner being built.

Uploaded to the airline’s official Youtube channel, the four minute video shows the arrival of the fuselage on the aptly named Dreamlifter cargo aircraft, the fitting of the engines, an army of workers weaving kilometres of cabling throughout the aircraft and more.

The 787-9 variation is 20ft longer than its predecessor, making room for the new eight seat First cabin.

The 787-9 will start flying to Delhi this month, followed by Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Kuala Lumpur and Austin.

We're Chris Ashton and Simon Ceglinski, two Aussie travellers with a love of exploration and adventure, and the odd bit of luxury thrown in. We seek out street art, street food, and scuba diving wherever we go, and prefer the road less travelled over well-worn tourist paths.
