CHARLESTON, S.C. (TheStreet) — Boeing on Friday rolled out the first 787 Dreamliner to be built in South Carolina, just 29 months after breaking ground on its $750 million complex here.
“It’s not just a rollout of another new model,” Jack Jones, vice president and general manager of Boeing Charleston, told reporters. “It is history. It is history for this state (and) it is history for the Boeing Co., to build a new aircraft outside of Puget Sound.”
The 787 is viewed as the aircraft that will change commercial aviation, not only because it is more fuel efficient than predecessors but also because with 210 to 250 seats it is a relatively small plane that still can fly 7,800 miles, meaning it will open new global markets and, in effect, make the world smaller.
