Boeing Dream Lifter

Designed to carry the components of the new Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

The tail of the super freighter 'Dreamlifter' aircraft, carrying the massive wings for the first Boeing 787 'Dreamliner,' is opened after it's arrival from Japan, Tuesday, May 15, 2007, in Everett, Wash. The tail of the specially designed 747 freighter swings open for huge payloads that are unloaded using the largest cargo loader in the world. The Boeing factory needs one more major component, a central fuselage section from Charleston, S.C., before workers can begin to assemble the plane that is scheduled to roll out July 8.

  1. My fiance and I were driving west on I-17 from Charleston this afternoon and we saw this plane descending. It was huge and appeared to just be floating in the sky.

    As soon as we got back to Charlotte I looked the plane up online. Very cool that we had a chance sighting of this plane!
