Dreamliner model

At Boeing's 787 Dreamliner Gallery in Everett, Wash., airline customers can explore various interior options for the new aircraft. On the night before the Dreamliner's first flight, we took a look inside.

Here, at the Gallery's entrance, a large-scale model shows the 787's distinctive profile.
