Scott Marchand, executive director, Pima Air & Space Museum, added, "We are honored to be selected by Boeing to be the custodian of such a significant historic next generation aircraft and to be able to display it to the public from the U.S. and around the world."

A002 is the second of three flight test 787-8s Boeing plans to share with communities and future generations of employees and airplane enthusiasts.
