Cape Town- Boeing is ready to take flight with its Dreamliner aircraft at the Farnborough Air show.

This year the air show celebrates its centenary of aviation history in style and takes place from the 19th to the 20th of July with a 4-and-a-half hour Air show display.  

Farnborough has confirmed a record number of displays, with over 70 aircraft confirmed for the static aircraft park and the flying display including more large bodied aircraft than in recent such as the 787-9 Dreamliner plane.

 After a period of mishaps with its Dreamliner 787, this second member of the Boeing 787 family initially rolled out of Washington in August of last year.

 Check out this cool Boeing’s Dreamliner video.

At 20 feet (6 metres) longer than the 787-8, the 787-9 extends the 787 family in both capacity and range, carrying 40 more passengers an additional 300 nautical miles.

The 787-9 leverages the design of the 787-8 such as its exceptional environmental performance - 20 per cent less fuel use and 20 percent fewer emissions than similarly sized airplanes.
