Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner Interior and Exterior Tour at Singapore Airshow 2012

The Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner was one of the main attractions of the Singapore Airshow 2012. With dream tour airplane - ZA003 - on the static display it gave media and VIPs attending the show the chance to get a little experience with this brand new aircraft.

In this HD video you will see the exterior of the plane, the cockpit, the economy class section as well as business class. You should note the larger windows which are dimmed electronically and can be fully controlled by the stewardesses. These windows have a slight delay built into them in an attempt to stop people playing with them too much. It takes just under a minute to go from clear to the darkest setting. Apart from all the high-tech materials used, and the fuel savings that the airlines will enjoy, customers can look forward to better cabin pressure, better humidity and a more spacious cabin which should all result in a more enjoyable flight.

It must be understood that the 787 Dreamliner is not competing with the mammoth and highly popular Airbus A380, but will be in competition with the Airbus A350 XWB when it comes out.

Is it as good as Boeing would like you to believe? Only time will tell, as their is no way that you can draw a conclusion from a test aircraft sat on a static dsiplay at an Airshow.
