The Boeing 787 Dreamliner made its international debut landing at Farnborough Airport at 9:09 a.m. (local time) on Sunday in support of the Farnborough International Airshow that begins Monday.

"It's an honor to showcase the 787 here at the Farnborough Airshow," said Scott Fancher, vice president and general manager of the 787 program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "I can't think of a finer stage on which to present this highly anticipated airplane."

This is the first international trip made by a Boeing 787 Dreamliner. The airplane arrived in Farnborough following a nonstop flight from Seattle.

"We took advantage of the flying time to conduct some flight testing on the way," Fancher said. "We're taking every opportunity to complete our testing requirements when we fly."

About a dozen people traveled on the airplane to conduct testing during the flight.

The airplane, referred to as ZA003, will depart Tuesday afternoon, 20 July 2010.
