MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. – A South Carolina plantation known for its family-friendly attractions is going to new heights with a corn maze dedicated to Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner.  The 8-acre maze at the Boone Hall Plantation is actually sponsored by Boeing, which opened a 787 plant in Charleston, S.C. this year. The other 787 factory is located in Everett, Wash.  Boeing delivered its first 787 this week to All Nippon Airways of Japan.

The Boeing logo, a rendition of its 787 Dreamliner and “Boone Hall Plantation” are embedded in this maze in a large field at Boone Hall Plantation, viewed from helicopter height Thursday. The maze is part of the plantation’s Pumpkin Patch attractions, today through Oct. 31, featuring pumpkins for sale and family fun.

Boone Hall Plantation  unveiled its 2011 corn maze in a ribbon cutting ceremony Thursday at 3pm.  The twist and turns in the maze form a giant image of a Boeing 787 Dreamliner.  Boeing is the sponsor of this annual attraction at Boone Hall.

Jack Jones, vice president and general manager of Boeing South Carolina, along with Boone Hall Plantation owner Willie McRae opened the maze to the public.

The corn maze covers more than eight acres and is one of the largest of its kind in the Southeastern United States.

Featured at 16 different locations inside this year's maze will be interactive text messaging displays with questions about the 787 Dreamliner and Boeing's South Carolina operations.
