It's up, up and away.

After years of planning--and several delays--Boeing's 787 is finally doing what it is supposed to do--fly.

Boeing first rolled out the 787, also known as the Dreamliner, at an event in July 2007 and the jet was supposed to make its maiden voyage last year. A machinists' strike and other problems, however, had led to several delays.

CNET's Daniel Terdiman and Kent German are in Everett, Wash., covering the event.
