The 787 Dreamliner is here

Boeing has rolled out its brand-new plane, the 787 Dreamliner.

EVERETT, Wash.--How else to say it?

The 787 Dreamliner is here.

The world's first 787 Dreamliner is here. It was rolled out in Everett, Wash., on July 8, 2007, or 07/08/07 Daniel Terdiman/CNET News.com

At just a couple minutes before 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Boeing cracked the doors open to its mammoth facility here, and up rolled the world's first 787.

Looking resplendent in the afternoon sunshine on a beautiful day, the 787 is a lovely plane.

It is both modern looking and reminiscent of the traditional Boeing style.

How well does it fly? Well, Boeing says it is energy efficient, profitable, and all kinds of other other great things. That will take some time to know for sure, since the first passengers won't get on a Dreamliner until next year.

The 787 Dreamliner has more pre-orders than any other jetliner in history Daniel Terdiman/CNET News.com

But for now, we can say, well, the 787 is here.
